Frank Lloyd Wright’s Spring House in Tallahassee, Florida, was recently listed on the “11 Most Endangered Historic Places in America” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the Spring House Institute is trying to save it. They have started a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo to acquire the House from the original owners, the Lewises. One of America’s architectural gems, the house was built between 1952 and 1954, and was created with an unconventional passive solar “hemicycle” design; one of only twelve such buildings in the world. Spring House Institute is hoping to raise $100,000 dollars to put towards preserving the building and turning it into a public venue for classes, community meetings, weddings, events, and as the home of Spring House Institute—a teaching institute.
