After 15 years of hard work it finally has happened. So happy for Stuart Graff, Lynda Waggoner, and William Storrer.
Since Wright had over 500 of his designs built and some 430 still stand it took a while to get the list down to 8 of his iconic designs.

It is a big deal because Wright's architecture is finally recognized on the world stage and now receives the notoriety it has deserved for so long.
Eight prime examples of a truly original American architecture are now inscribed on the Heritage list.

Where ever he may be resting, hopefully, the master is smiling today.
