Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West

Famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s (1867-1959) personal residence for almost 20 years. Set on 600 acres in the foothills of northeast Scottsdale, with guided tours of the buildings and the surrounding desert. Anneliese’s Bookstore, just inside the entrance to the campus, sells an array of Wright-pattered ornaments, jewelry, neckties and housewares, and is the meeting place for all tours.

Frank Lloyd Wright changed the way we build and live. Ask the average citizen to name a famous American architect and you can bet their answer will be Frank Lloyd Wright. Designing 1,114 architectural works of all types—532 of which were realized—he created some of the most monumental and intimate spaces in the United States.

Taliesin West, Wright’s beloved winter home, is Scottsdale’s only National Historic Landmark, a treasure at the foothills of the McDowell Mountains. Taliesin West was established in 1937 and diligently handcrafted over many years into a world unto itself. Deeply connected to the desert from which it was forged, Taliesin West possesses an almost prehistoric grandeur. It was built and maintained almost entirely by Wright and his apprentices, making it among the most personal of his creations. A lively community, it is still the home of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture (recently re-named the School of Architecture at Taliesin).

Open year round with many unique tour offerings by knowledgeable and lively guides, you will experience organic architecture, beautiful landscape, art, historical anecdotes and breathtaking views in a place that Wright called “the top of the world.”
