Taliesin West is the western base of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Taliesin West sits within a pristine Sonoran desert landscape at the foot of the McDowell Mountains in North Scottsdale.
Taliesin West used to be Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, studio and laboratory during the winter months. The architecture is highly inspired by Eastern art and design. It also showcases Frank Lloyd Wright’s multi-disciplinary skills.
Today the site is a not-for-profit foundation promoting FLW’s body of work and architecture philosophy. It is also the location of FLW architecture school, one of the smallest accredited architecture schools in the United States, counting only 25 students a year.
