It's been 150 years since the birth of Frank Lloyd Wright, America's best-known modernist architect.One of the remarkable things about Wright's enduring legacy is how popular his buildings remain as pilgrimage sites for his fans. In all, about 380 Wright structures are still standing, and those that are open to the public often sell out their tours weeks in advance, even in relatively out-of-the-way places like Taliesin, in rural Spring Green, Wisconsin, and at the Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, at 19 stories tall the only skyscraper Wright ever built.The leaking roofs are among many structural issues that make Wright's buildings hard to preserve, Chusid said.The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy lists all public Wright sites on its website along with the 150th events. Exhibitions on view this summer include "Frank Lloyd Wright's Journey to the Prairie" exhibition at the Price Tower, through Aug. 27, and "Buildings for the Prairie" at the Milwaukee Art Museum, from July 28 to Oct. 15 .
