Vintage black and white photo showing Guggenheim-type architecture, the David Wright houseIt's a happy new year for Frank Lloyd Wright fans. After years of neglect and threats of demolition, the 1952 Phoenix, Arizona house Wright built for his son, David, has been saved from a developer's wrecking ball. An anonymous donor bought the residence, which is significant for its concrete spiral design similar to but predating Wright's Guggenheim Museum in New York City. Details will be released this month about how you can help support restoration of the David Wright House.
