Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West

Summary
Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright's studio, school of architecture, and home in the Arizona desert, is universally recognized as a modern masterpiece. It began as a "desert camp" in 1937 and continued to evolve throughout his life. Today it represents the summation of Wright's ideals of "Organic Architecture" - an approach to building that is "appropriate to place, appropriate to time, and appropriate to man." In order to better understand the enduring significance and meaning of Taliesin West, Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, first provides and in-depth overview of Wright's remarkable life and career. He then focuses on Taliesin West, relating everything from its origins, innovative use of materials, experimental construction methods to Wright's orchestration of architectural concepts. Mr. Pfeiffer conjures an intimate portrait of Taliesin West from the perspective of someone who has lived and worked there for six decades.
