Preserve

The future preservation of the Bachman Wilson House will take place on the grounds of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. As with most of Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings, the difficulty is always how to maintain the wonderful appreciation of his aesthetic over the practicality of the users.

To maintain these structures in pristine condition requires substantial attention to routine maintenance. Therefore, a concise maintenance program and schedule should be developed and followed for each building. For example, the drainage systems for flat roofs require regular checking and clearing of debris, especially in deciduous tree regions.
