More on the Work of Frank Lloyd Wright and UNESCO's World Heritage List
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – On this edition of StudioTulsa, we follow up on a show that we aired last week (on the 12th), in which we spoke with Scott Perkins about the life, legacy, architecture, and artistry of Frank Lloyd Wright --- including Wright's landmark Price Tower, which is located in Bartlesville, Oklahoma (and which now houses the Price Tower Arts Center). Specifically, we're talking about how the Price Tower, along with nine other Wright structures, has been nominated to become a United States location on UNESCO's World Heritage List. We're joined today by Janet Halstead, Executive Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, and Tim Boruff, the Price Tower Arts Center's Executive Director. Price Tower (Wright's only skyscraper) appears on the U.S. nomination list (or "tentative list") alongside Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, the Johnson Wax Administration Building in Wisconsin, the Marin County Civic Center in California, Taliesin in Wisconsin, Taliesin West in Arizona, the Robie House in Chicago, the Unity Temple in Oak Park, and the Hollyhock House in Los Angeles.
