On Sunday, June 7, 2019, UNESCO inscribed Taliesin West in Scottsdale as one in a group of eight masterworks by architect Frank Lloyd Wright as a World Heritage Site. The group of eight, entitled “The 20th-Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright,” is the first World Heritage listing for the United States in the field of modern architecture. The nomination process, lead by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conversancy, took 15 plus years, as organizers narrowed down buildings that best represents Wright and the World Heritage Committee’s selection criteria. Taliesin West is the second World Heritage Site in Arizona, next to the Grand Canyon National Park.
