The Moore House, designed by Lloyd Wright and built in 1959, was swiftly demolished yesterday down in Palos Verdes Estates. After a lengthy preservation battle, the LA Conservancy lost a final appeal on Tuesday night and the owner moved fast and furious on Wednesday. Soon, a 6,000 square foot Mediterranean-style house will rise on the former site of the glassy, winged Wright. A member of the Conservancy's Modern Committee visited yesterday and reports back with these photos. She writes "The owner was there admiring the destruction when I stopped. He said to me 'It was beautiful, but a terrible house to live in' and his new home will be 'a wonderful thing for the neighborhood'."
