"The building deserved to be torn down...We must preserve that of Wright which truly represents his organic architectural principles, and the W.S. Carr house did not even when built, though it had the master's signature on the plan."

I tend to agree w/ this guy - Artists aren't gods - they don't always produce perfection or a masterpiece; sometimes they're responsible for less than mediocre work.

Save your energies for something worth saving.

The worst part of this is that now the clock has to restart on a reliable tactic for Wright preservation -- "You can't tear that down, there hasn't been a Wright demolition in 30 years." It's going to be a lot easier for somebody to knock down the next one, and it might be something that actually is worth saving.
