|About these ratings|
Frank Lloyd Wright loved the Sonoran Desert, and he used these 600 acres of property at the base of the McDowell Mountains as his winter home and school. With the help of his art and architecture students, Wright constructed apartments, studios and theaters using local materials to help the camp blend with its natural surroundings. This National Historic Landmark is still used as an educational space for budding artists and architects.
Located in Scottsdale, there are several different guided tours of Taliesin West, each focusing on a different aspect of the camp's natural beauty. You'll learn more about Wright's work and life here in Arizona and study certain architectural masterpieces within the facility. Taliesin West's also hosts a variety of special events ranging from art shows to concert series.
