I have always been a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright since I learned about him in grade school. I had the opportunity this weekend to take a tour of Taliesin West here in Scottsdale AZ. This is his winter camp of his architecture school which is still mentoring students 75 years later. It was a beautiful day to take a walking tour and learn about such an interesting person. The above picture is looking at the studio that still has drawing tables that Mr. Wright used himself. It is a working studio with computers for the common day practice of architecture, but all students are still required to draw by hand.
This is the entrance into the community living room. A classic embrace and release entryway of Mr. Wright's, which includes a low dark entryway that transitions into a open multi-purpose space.
A view of some of the seating in the living room. The lighting is all natural and the panels were originally canvas and there was no glass used...so all the structures at the camp were open. The students and faculty stay in AZ in the winter months and go to WI for the summer months where there is the original camp simply named Taliesin. We even got to see the students and faculty at lunch in the dinning room. I highly recommend a tour for anyone who visits the area!
