Wright designed more than 80 projects for California, and saw more than 25 built.

On Tuesday, April 28, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1909 masterpiece, Unity Temple, to its list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. For Unity Temple, this is a significant, though not necessarily joyful, honor. This is a critical time for Unity Temple–a critical crossroads—and to have such a prestigious organization as the National Trust acknowledge Unity Temple’s urgent needs is immensely meaningful.
