Last Friday morning I took a drive out to Taliesin West to take the tour. I had taken it before several years ago but, it was an evening tour and I wanted to get some photos so I decided to do it one more time. Taliesin West was the winter home of Frank Lloyd Wright and it is currently owned an operated by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. It still serves as a School of Architecture where students earn a Masters of Architecture Degree.
Taliesin West was FLW's winter home and it was built specifically to suit him and his unique lifestyle. For many years after the purchase of the land in 1937, there was no water or electricity and he, his wife, and his apprentices lived in tent-like structures and the hauled water to the site.
Tomorrow I'll show you a couple more photos from this interesting place.
