Taliesin West

Taliesin West is a UNESCO World Heritage site and National Historic Landmark nestled in the desert foothills of the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale, AZ. It is also the home of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the School of Architecture at Taliesin.

This magnificent complex, completed in 1959, was built as Frank Lloyd Wright's personal residence and architectural school. It was created from native materials—rocks from the desert floor and sand from the washes. Today, the site still serves as a living, working, educational facility.

Frank Lloyd Wright was a famous American Architect. Wright changed the way we build and live. Designing 1,114 architectural works of all types — 532 of which were realized — he created some of the most innovative spaces in the United States.
