Frank Lloyd Wright’s Spring House is one of 11 Most Endangered Structures

Although it’s listed as a historic site by the National Trust For Historic Preservation, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Spring House is in serious danger of ruination. The structure was built in 1954 for George and Clifton Lewis and has stayed in the family ever since. Unfortunately, the couple could not afford to keep the home in perfect condition and it fell into sad disrepair over the years. Recently, the National Trust For Historic Preservation added the home to their list of 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.

Now, with the passing of both George and Clifton, there is no one left to restore the unique Tallahassee residence. Without a massive restoration, the only FLW-designed residence in Florida will inevitably fall to ruins. An organization called the Spring House Institute has taken up the cause and is currently working to raise funds for preservation. Maybe you could help! Click here to find out more.

Exhibit Spotlight: Competing Utopias in the Neutra DVL House

Competing Utopias is a an experimental installation of cold war modern design from East and West in one context. The installation is organized by two Los Angeles institutions: the Neutra VDL Studio and Residences and the Wende Museum and Archive of the Cold War, each a different type of museum. Its force comes from the collision of two design cultures that have been kept apart but have been visually connected in ways yet unexamined.

Competing Utopias will remain on display until September 31, 2014. Learn more about the Neutra VDL Research House and the Competing Utopias Exhibit here.
