There's an easy way to save stuff like this: buy it.

Topic...I lived in one of the "other"  Wright houses, it did not leak. Leaks can be repaired.

Someone else thought it was more valuable as a tear-down than you did as a keeper then. Otherwise you would have outbid them for it.

The person who purchased the property from the heirs, assured the family that she was going to restore it, and occupy it.  Then, she auctioned off an important Wright designed rug...then early this year she quickly sold it to a developer who claims he didnt realize the importance. So, it's not quite as cut and dried as you think. I take it you have no problems with this building being knocked down.

If I did have a problem with it, I'd be raising money to buy it, not complaining to governmental busybodies about it.

The "complaining to governmental busybodies" is an effort to buy more time in order to find a buyer with true preservation intentions. Luckily, this is now getting world wide attention, and hopefully a positive outcome will be the result.

Remember, gwharton is part of the architectural elite, he can't be bothered with the problems of the architectural plebians.

all i r give up can do is resort to childish name calling..oh to be as cool as you.

In Picturing Wright, an album from FLW photography by Pedro E. Guerrero, there is a nice story about a big fight between Frank and his son David, resulting in a no talking to you Dad situation.

How could you not know about the significance of it!  Look at that place, ignorance or a lie?
