The School of Architecture at Taliesin said it will no longer receive a Frank Lloyd Wright house in Phoenix that the famous architect designed for his son.

Last year, house owner Zach Rawling said he would give it to the architecture school if $7 million could be raised to restore and manage the 1952 property. Rawling purchased the Wright home in 2012 with plans to turn it into a museum.

The announcement did not say how much had been raised, but said those funds will be donated to the school. The fate of the historic house is unknown.
