Taliesin West, Scottsdale

Taliesin West is a number one tourist attraction in Scottsdale, near Phoenix. When you take a 90 minute guided tour of this property, you learn a lot about America’s most famous architect: Frank Lloyd Wright  (1867-1959). He thought of Taliesin West as a home, workplace, and architectural laboratory. Wright and his apprentices built Taliesin West out of the stone and sand that surrounded them in the Sonoran Desert. Many of those apprentices who worked and lived alongside Mr. Wright still live at Taliesin West. Wright’s philosophy was to built in harmony with the land respecting the nature.

Here is one of his most famous projects:
