Good News – The David Wright House is Saved!

Many people are celebrating at this time of year and we have one more reason to celebrate. The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy has facilitated the purchase of the David and Gladys Wright House in Phoenix, Arizona, through an LLC owned by an anonymous benefactor. The transaction closed on December 20 for an undisclosed price. The property will be transferred to an Arizona not-for-profit organization responsible for the restoration, maintenance and operation of the David Wright House.

The change in ownership guarantees that the house will survive and be preserved. LEARN MORE . ‘Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy‘ expect city Landmark designation to follow shortly, but there is no longer a demolition threat. We will also pursue long-term protections for the house.

Thank you for signing the petition and being part of this success! It was very important to demonstrate that so many people around the world cared about this house and took the time to voice their concerns.

As plans progress for the David Wright House there will be opportunities to contribute to its restoration. Details will be posted on the Conservancy website as they become available.
