I'm fairly certain there was no Wright house in Florida that has been lost. Very likely the house was by some other significant, but less well known architect....perhaps by one of Wrights former apprentices. Regardless, your contempt for the house's destruction is justified. This kind of thing happens all the time. The callousness of some people and their willingness to be pariahs in their own communities amazes me. Often there is an effort to get a demo permit quickly and quietly and demolish a house before anyone has time to object. It's a strategy designed by lawyers.

The Florida house was a Wright design but not built by Wright or designed for the site. It is the Lewis Spring House near Tallahassee.
