Frank Lloyd Wright
Frank Lloyd Wright is America’s most revered architect. His body of work, from utilitarian Usonian houses to his homage to nature, Fallingwater, that nearly rivals nature itself… from the iconic Guggenheim Museum in New York to an unrealized design for the world’s tallest building, never fail to challenge our perception of the built form’s impact on the experience of daily life. And in the challenge, we learn to experience the environment with new eyes.
One of Wright’s most important legacies is Taliesin West, where the Wisconsin native tamed Arizona’s Sonoran Desert and with his first students built the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture over 75 years ago. Today 100,000 visitors experience Taliesin West each year. For many, it is eye-opening to experience Wright’s enormous ideas through encountering his architecture firsthand.
