00051ScottsdaleBlogs – Frank Lloyd Wright by Joe Szabo
By Joe Szabo
Frank Lloyd Wright was undoubtedly one of the 20th Century’s greatest architects. His unique vision of melding architecture to a particular landscape is renowned. His reverence for nature and landscape are legendary. Is it any wonder that he chose Scottsdale as the place to build Taliesan West, which served as his home and workshop?
Set in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains on over 600 acres of Sonoran Desert, Taliesan West remains one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most stunning masterpieces. The complex is open the public for guided tours of the buildings, desert walks and even moonlit tours through the gardens. No matter which tour you select you are sure the be delighted by the artist’s amazing talent at preserving the landscape while inhabiting it artfully.
