A recent nomination by the United States seeks to elevate ten celebrated buildings characteristic of influential architect Frank Lloyd Wright's style to UNESCO World Heritage Sites. If the nomination is fulfilled, the collection of buildings will join the 1,007 designated sites currently on the UNESCO World Heritage List, including some of the most recognizable buildings in the world like the Taj Mahal and Sydney Opera House. These structures are recognized for their extraordinary cultural significance and "outstanding universal values." See the ten nominated buildings, after the break.
"Key Works of Modern Architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright" champions modern architecture nominations on the World Heritage List for the United States, broadening the scope of its commitment to the preservation and conservation of its unique cultural sites.
