Save the David and Gladys-Wright house

One of the most important houses designed by FLW is being threatened by demolition. The house was designed at the same period as the Guggenheim museum in NY and is regarded as the 'test ground' for the design principles of the Guggenheim.

Some project developer has now acquired the property and is planning to demolish the house to probably be replaced by some nif naf housing development.

Please go to the blow mentioned website and sign the petition to save this house!

Thanks a lot,

Ard
