Frank Lloyd Wright in Arizona

Arizona is home to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West.  What more do I need to say?  Actually quite a bit.  If the only Wright buildings you see in Arizona are at Taliesin West, then you’ve missed a lot of great architecture. 

 

It seems that Mr. Wright always enjoyed building close to home.  If you look at the places where he lived over the years (Chicago, Oak Park, Spring Green, Scottsdale, etc) there are always a huge number of Wright buildings in the area.  Arizona is no exception. 

 

The Phoenix area is blessed with many beautiful Wright homes and public buildings.  Spending a weekend there was like spending a weekend at Disney World for a kid.  I was in heaven.  Please enjoy the photos from this trip.
