How sad, it is almost unthinkable. and yet another Wright work is lost. simply amazing that no one could be bothered to preserve an architectural landmark!

What if there were a list of, say, Frank Lloyd Wright properties and some person or group could put them ALL on an "endangered" list and work toward getting all of them designated historically important and exempt from demolition?
Just asking.

I wonder if the Pierce Arrow transportation museum in Buffalo were offered anything from the site? They are building Wright's 1927 filling station, sounds like parts of it would fit their collection, too. It's hard for me to understand this happening in 2013 when so many other Wright buildings have been, or are being restored.

The Pierce Museum has not been offered anything from the Hoffman Site. The question that would need to be answered before they would consider accepting something would regard if the freestanding furniture for instance is of the original construction or from the later renovations by the Taliesin Associated Architects.

Ah, back when the Porsche shared parts with the VW Beetle.
