Taliesin West

Updated: Mar 13, 2020

Here in the warmth of the Arizona sun lies a wonderful representation of Frank Lloyd Wright's genius.

There are complementary rectangles, circles and squares meshing symbiotically both inside and out, here at Wright's former summer home, currently housing The School of Architecture at Taliesin (formerly the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture) and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

Much of the property remains original and intact, though after nearly 100 years there are visible hints of deterioration, yet continuing as an architectural masterpiece remaining in harmony with the natural desert surroundings.

The overall design of Taliesin West ( pronounced Tahl-ee-ess-en) incorporates an inherent connection to the environment as light dances throughout the property in fluid and unusual ways.

An abundance of appropos sculpture adds to the artistic flavor and character of this landmark World Heritage Site.
