About the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy

FLWBC logo

The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, an international preservation organization, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Chicago. Founded in 1989, its mission is to facilitate the preservation and maintenance of the remaining structures designed by Frank Lloyd Wright through education, advocacy and technical services. A corps of dedicated and knowledgeable board members plus staff and volunteers accomplish the Conservancy’s mission through strategic initiatives that include: advocating privately and publicly against demolition and neglect of Wright structures; providing access to expert technical conservation and restoration resources; reaching an international audience for sellers of Wright properties and helping owners find preservation-minded buyers; and introducing new audiences to Wright’s work and deepening the understanding of this architecture’s importance in American and international culture through SaveWright, a biannual magazine. The Conservancy also recognizes and honors individuals and organizations that demonstrate extraordinary efforts in stewardship of Wright buildings or in the furtherance of the Wright architectural legacy through the Wright Spirit Awards.
