Frank Lloyd Wright Campus at Florida Southern College Included
on World Monument Funds 2008 World Watch List LAKELAND The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings on
the Florida Southern College campus have been included on the World
Monument Funds list of 100 most endangered sites in the world.
The College has the worlds largest single-site collection
of Wrights buildings and is the only college campus designed
by the master architect. We are honored to have been included
on the 2008 Watch List, said Florida Southern College president
Dr. Anne Kerr. Selection to this distinguished body of architecturally
significant sites will draw worldwide attention to the outstanding
Frank Lloyd Wright legacy at Florida Southern, and it will provide
a powerful endorsement of our efforts to secure funding to restore
this unique world treasure. The World Monuments Fund chooses
sites based on historical or cultural significance, urgency of the
threat, and viability of a sustainable solution. All 12 Wright structures
are in need of restoration, and their inclusion on the Watch List
designates the structures as worthy of preservation. Other sites
on the 2008 list include Perus Machu Picchu; Shanghais
modern architecture from the 1920s to the 1940s; areas of New Orleans
already devastated by Hurricane Katrina and threatened by rising
seas; and sites along U.S. Route 66, once the main thoroughfare
to the West. The World Monuments Fund has included other world renowned
sites such as the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China, Ellis Island,
and the Panama Canal on past Watch Lists.
