Eight buildings by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright have been nominated for inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List under the title: “The 20th-Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright.”

The list is actually a revision of a previous application of ten buildings lodged in 2015. The nomination is particularly significant as the Wright sites would be one of only 24 US World Heritage Sites, and the only example of modern architecture from the US.

The eight buildings span Wright’s 70-year career and include iconic structures like the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater.

The next step is for the International Council on Monuments and Sites to review the list and take it into consideration for the 2019 World Heritage Meeting in July next year. If chosen, the collection will join the 1,092 designated sites currently on the UNESCO World Heritage List, including the Taj Mahal and Sydney Opera House.

Do you think Wright's buildings belong on the list of most recognizable buildings in the world? Let us know in the comments below.
