Petition: Save a Frank Lloyd Wright house

The Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy has set up an ONLINE PETITION to help urge Phoenix in designating the David S. and Gladys Wright House (Arcadia, 1950) as a historical landmark. A unique residence created for Wright’s son, the house is at risk of demolition by developers. The spiral design predates the Guggenheim by six years and with its “concrete-block detailing, and interior design, the house was (and still is) considered to be one of Wright’s most ‘remarkable and praiseworthy’ efforts since Fallingwater.”

UPDATE (25 September 2012): On September 17, the Phoenix Historic Preservation Commission voted unanimously to recommend Landmark designation for the David and Gladys Wright House. More information here.
