THE ARI­ZONA BILTMORE

Where Phoenix - - WHERE NOW -

In Cen­tral Phoenix, The Ari­zona Biltmore opened to its first guests in 1929. Frank Lloyd Wright acted as the con­sult­ing ar­chi­tect in the de­sign of the re­sort, part­ner­ing and col­lab­o­rat­ing with his for­mer stu­dent, Al­bert Chase McArthur. “Biltmore Blocks,” made of desert sand and pre- cast in 34 dif­fer­ent geo­met­ric pat­terns in­spired by the trunk of a palm tree, were used to build the re­sort.
