Eight buildings by architect Frank Lloyd Wright declared World Heritage by Unesco


American architect and main precursor of the organic architecture (the harmony between construction and nature) was the initiator of the Prairie School movement. Wright created a new concept regarding the interior spaces of buildings, spaces that were built to open to the outside, achieving with it a huge visual transparency, profusion of light and a feeling of spaciousness and openness.

Criticized in his time for allegedly having outdated ideas, however his work has transcended much more than many imagined.

The World Heritage Committee included in its 43rd edition the list of cultural sites eight buildings of the famed architect, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Cascade House in Fallingwater, the Unitarian Temple, the Robie House, the Taliesin House and Casa Jacobs in Wisconsin, as well as Casa Malva in California and the architect's house-workshop in Taliesin, Arizona.
