  • A truly remarkable example of blending architecture with the local environment. Using the desert as his palette, Frank Lloyd Wright has crafted a true to the location design for his own winter home. A lot of his usual elements from the Prairie style still exist but this is such a unique place because of the materials used. Good tour guides and well kept up by his foundation. A lovely gift shop to pick up souvenirs as well. Worth the detour. A must-see for any Wright fan!
  • Visiting Taliesin West was a fantastic experience with a tour that guided you around and discussed the key aspects of many of the design features. I've always have appreciated Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture designs, and the tour allowed me to get into his head and better understand the rational and reasoning for many design features FLW has left us. If you are in the Phoenix area, take a 1/2 day and tour Taliesin West, you won't be disappointed.
