Frank Lloyd Wright

Part Two, Taliesin West, A Unique Design in the Desert

Entry to Private Living Quarters, Taliesin West, 1940


After suffering pneumonia in Wisconsin in 1936, Frank Lloyd Wright, at the age of 70, came to Arizona to purchase land to build a new winter home and studio, Taliesin West.  The design is purely about the desert, with the buildings looking like they rise from the ground, constructed with rock and sand gathered from nearby.  This lecture will look in-depth at all of the main structures on the site, including the incredible Cabaret Theater, partially submerged in the ground and nearly perfect acoustically, despite walls of rough concrete.  The property was designated a World Heritage Site in 2019.
