6 destroyed Frank Lloyd Wright buildings

The prolific, scandal-plagued Wright — who died in 1959 at the age of 91 — completed more than 400 works in the United States and abroad during his lifetime, so it’s inevitable that some have been destroyed. We’ve decided to take a look at six notable Wright-designed structures ranging from hotels to duplexes to doghouses that are no longer with us due to intentional demolishment or natural disaster. We’ve also included an iconic Wright building – his own summer home and studio in his native Wisconsin – that was severely damaged not once but twice by fire, but was rebuilt and is still standing today.
