Taliesin West

Where Phoenix - - WHERE NOW -

Tucked in the desert of North Scotts­dale, Taliesin West was the win­ter home of one of the most in­no­va­tive and well-known Amer­i­can ar­chi­tects, Frank Lloyd Wright. Through­out Wright’s 70-year ca­reer, he de­signed churches, mu­se­ums, schools, of­fices and sky­scrapers with his un­ortho­dox and con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­tural style. He is known for his func­tion­al­ity and de­sign in­tegrity, har­mo­niously blend­ing nat­u­ral sur­round­ings into his Uso­nian and Prairie Style works. The his­toric land­mark of Taliesin West, es­tab­lished in 1937, is among 532 struc­tures de­signed and re­al­ized by the ar­chi­tect, and it re­mains one of his most prom­i­nent un­der­tak­ings. Taliesin West con­tin­ues to func­tion as an ed­u­ca­tional home for fu­ture ar­chi­tects of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Ar­chi­tec­ture. And it re­mains a site of vis­i­tors’ ad­mi­ra­tion, as the Frank Lloyd Wright Foun­da­tion con­ducts tours and of­fers in­sights into the life, works and teach­ings of the ar­chi­tect. Tours are of­fered year-round, and in­clude ar­eas such as the Gar­den Room, draft­ing stu­dio, Mu­sic Pavil­ion and Cabaret, Taliesin West Din­ing Room and more (reser­va­tions rec­om­mended).
