The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is currently considering the addition of 11 Frank Lloyd Wright–designed buildings as a single World Heritage Site. In 2008, the U.S. Department of Interior submitted the nomination of the buildings, citing that the selected designs “span almost 60 years of his efforts to create an ‘organic architecture’ that integrates buildings with nature and dramatically melds form with space.  All aspects of design, from siting to furnishings, reinforce this concept. … The properties proposed have been acclaimed as masterworks by architects, scholars, and critics, virtually from the time of construction.” Being such iconic inspiration, BRABBU would not left this nomination behind without a honored mention in BRABBU blog. Between all the inspirations, Lloyd’s buildings always be part of world heritage.

Here are the 11 nominated Wright buildings considered by UNESCO as Architecture Heritage Status.
