With a desire to escape the harsh Wisconsin winters, every year Frank Lloyd Wright moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, where he and his apprentices lived in the home they constructed, Taliesin West.
Free from the constraints of building permits, he was also able to use his land as a desert laboratory to test new construction techniques and materials.
The home, still used as The School of Architecture at Taliesin, is open for tours. We took the 90-minute Insights Tour, which includes his office, a musical pavilion, the family’s living quarters and the huge living room with seating for 65 people.
