After a sale of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in 2013, Frank Lloyd Wright's model of The San Francisco Call Building, originally residing at Taliesin and later, Hillside Home School, was moved to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). The Organic Architecture and Design Archives, Inc. (OAD) believes that this model - a striking 8-foot tall replica built originally for the 1940 MoMA Exhibition - was "an integral part of the design of Taliesin."

You can now contribute to a campaign on Kickstarter to professionally recreate the model and site it in its rightful place at Taliesin. All involved parties have expressed permission of the project, and work is already underway by the OAD – the only obstacle left is the funding. You can donate to, and read more about the campaign here.
