About the logo
The trademark of The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy is a symbolic abstraction of the facade of the Larkin Building in Buffalo, New York. It debuted on the cover of the Conservancy's premier issue of the Bulletin in June 1990. The accompanying headline read; "The loss of 67 buildings and the threats to others prompted the formation of the Conservancy. Could the 1950 demolition of the Larkin Administration Building have happened in 1990?" The answer unfortunately is yes.
The lost Larkin Building is emblematic of the risks posed by the modern world to Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture. This logo symbolizes the all too real potential for loss of architectural masterpieces whose importance is not fulling recognized and particularly in the case of private homes, those whose function are simply outmoded to suit modern lifestyles.
