Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West
Frank Lloyd Wright began building his desert masterpiece Taliesin West in 1937 as his personal winter home, studio, and architectural campus. In mid-2019, it was one of eight in a group of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The group, labeled "The 20th-Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright," is the first World Heritage listing for the United States in the field of modern architecture. This makes Taliesin West the second World Heritage Site in Arizona, after the Grand Canyon National Park. Visitors to the site on the beautiful Sonoran desert in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains in northeast Scottsdale can experience Wright's brilliant ability to integrate indoor and outdoor spaces as they walk through Wright's living quarters, to the theater, his office, and other buildings. The site offers a broad range of public tours every day, except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Booking in advance is highly recommended.
