Memories of Taliesin West

I was saddened to learn that Frank Lloyd Wright’s School of Architecture at Taliesin and Taliesin West will close. Established in 1932, Taliesin has been home to over 1,200 architects who furthered the practice of “Organic Architecture.”

I would make many walks from my home in Ancala (which I built in 1997), up the road to Taliesin West, occasionally bringing my camera along.  Attending events and taking tours enhanced my appreciation of how Wright and the school impacted architecture in many ways.

These photos are from my last walk to Taliesin West in April 2018, taken a few weeks before moving back to California.

While I’m not an architect, but rather an avid enthusiast, I have great hopes that Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision for educating new architects will continue.  Perhaps Arizona State University is a good place to continue that legacy.
