David and Gladys Wright House Submitted for Landmark Status

This might be an easy call. The organization seeking to turn the David and Gladys Wright House in Phoenix into an educational and cultural center filed for historic landmark protection last week, seeking official status for a 6.1-acre site before following through with plans to open it to the public.

The David & Gladys Wright House Foundation has been working to preserve this home in the Arcadia neighborhood, originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his son and daughter-in-law and built in 1952. According to a previous report by the city’s Historic Preservation Office from 2012, it’s the “most significant work within the city of Phoenix by the most significant architect in American history.” []
