Taliesen West Visiting Frank's Summer Home
When I was in Scottsdale I visited the summer home of Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesen West. He began building this desert masterpiece in 1937 as his personal winter home, studio, and architectural campus. Located on the beautiful Sonoran desert in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains in northeast Scottsdale. He was a real entrepreneur! It was his third wife's idea to engage the students in building their dream home. It was an amazing and inspiring place for me visit! Frank was the first to invent runway lighting, surround sound ,theatre seating and so much more! He really was the Einstein of architecture.
