Help Save The Wallbank House in Belcaro

The Wallbank House in Belcaro, a 1958 Usonian-design by Tician Papachristou and Daniel Havekost.
According to Shannon Stanboro of 5280mod.com,

The Denver Landmark Preservation Commission is holding a public hearing on Tuesday, December 7, regarding the landmark designation of this midmod gem designed by Tician Papachristou, an associate of Marcel Breuer.
