8 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Taliesin West was architect Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home

Eight. Count them. Eight examples of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture are now part of  the UNESCO World Heritage List. Although Wright created 449 structures during his lifetime, these eight made the list because they are exceptional examples of his work as arguably the most influential American architect of all time. Additionally, these properties are fully committed to the task of upholding the strict preservation and heritage standards that being designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site requires. Lucky for us, many of these sites have visiting hours and are eager for you to see for yourself the profound influence Frank Lloyd Wright had on the evolution of architecture around the world.
