Default New Unesco World Heritage Sites

New sites were just announced... and include 8 buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. As I looked over the FLW sites I was pleased to remember visiting many of them. The stylistic and structural innovations by FLW have always impressed me. I count myself as being one of the lucky few to know a man who spent his childhood in a FLW home that was designed and built by FLW for his parents... and is still the owner. I've been to the home a few times and swam in the pool with them, wandered the property, been invited to work on restoration.
The Grant House in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. edit: oops, not CR but rather neighboring town of Marion.

Anyone here have a favorite FLW building?

I remember thinking Taliesin was pretty cool looking, but I don't know much about architecture. Have you ever read The Fountainhead? It's based in part on Frank Lloyd Wright.

FallingWater is so awesome!!!

Sorry Dec8r, did not know about The Fountainhead... sounds fascinating. Read Rand's other stuff. Is now on my list! Thanks for the heads-up.

How did you come to know about The Fountainhead?

One thing about FLW and the architect/client relationship... at the end of many projects the client would say something like 'I hired FLW to work for me but instead I ended up working for HIM.'
