Picture 4After the staggering news broke that the embattled David and Gladys Wright House could be demolished as soon as tomorrow, the Associated Press reports Wednesday evening that "A senior adviser for Mayor Frank Stanton said Wednesday that the agreement with the developer who bought the 1952 home delays for nearly a month any demolition of the house." More after the jump...

While this buys a little time to try and find a solution that saves this important work of architecture, there's still much more work ahead. PrairieMod asked Janet Halstead, Executive Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, as to what the path forward is:

"We continue to work for City Council approval of landmark designation on Nov 7, 2012 which is absolutely the key to protecting the house for three years and working out a long-term solution. We need many more signatures on the petition and we need concerned residents of Phoenix to let their city council members know their views. Meanwhile we continue to work to identify additional potential offers to purchase the property. The loss of this building would be devastating."

Please follow the link, sign the petition and then find out how else you can help support the cause.
