The Museum of Modern ArtColumbia University and The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation have announced that the vast archives of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) have been jointly acquired by the University and the Museum and will become part of their permanent collections. The archive, which includes some 23,000 architectural drawings, 44,000 historical photographs, large-scale models, manuscripts, extensive correspondence and other documents, has remained in storage at Wright’s former headquarters — Taliesin (Spring Green, WI) and Taliesin West (Scottsdale, AZ) — since his death. Moving the archives to New York will maximise the visibility and research value of the collection for generations of scholars, students and the public — via Frank Lloyd Wright Archives relocate to New York | ArchDaily
