Taliesin West / 12345 N. Taliesin Drive, Scottsdale, AZ / 1937 / Usonian / Frank Lloyd Wright -- In 1938, 70-year-old Wright purchased 160 acres at the foot of the McDowell Mountains in present-day Scottsdale to make his winter home and studio. Inspired by the landscape, Wright sought a ‘nobly simple’ architecture in Taliesin West. Taliesin West’s monumental masonry was unearthed from the Sonoran desert, as the 20th century icon of modern architecture that it has become.

Frank Lloyd Wright's home - Taliesin West is open to the public. Young and old will enjoy touring this magnificent feat in architecture and learning how he used the resources available to him when building.
