Eight Frank Lloyd Wright buildings have been submitted to the UNESCO World Heritage List, according to the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.

The nomination was first submitted for consideration in 2015, but was sent back for revisions and further review.

The National Park Service Office of International Affairs submitted the revised nomination to the World Heritage Center in Paris on Nov. 20.

Now, it will be reviewed by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), an advising organization to the World Heritage Committee. In May, ICOMOS will make its recommendation as to whether the Wright nomination should be listed.

Finally, the nomination will be reviewed at the 2019 World Heritage Meeting scheduled for early July in Baku, Azerbaijan.

If accepted, the Wright sites will become one of 24 World Heritage sites in the United States, and would be the only listing of modern architecture.
