In mid-2019, UNESCO—the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization—added eight U.S. buildings that represent “the 20th Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright” to its highly selective World Heritage List. Among them were two recently renovated masterpieces in the Chicago area: Robie House and Unity Temple. Hear from historians and preservationists about what went into researching and applying for the UNESCO World Heritage status, and the impact it may bring to the individual properties and local economy.
