Taliesin West




Here are some shots of Frank Lloyd Wright's desert home, where he lived from Jan.-May every year from 1937 to his death in April of '59. Note the McDowell Mountains in the background. Wright wanted the house to become one with the desert, so he deliberately forced the horizontal, and used materials from the surrounding desert floor exclusively. This building is a prime example of what he termed "organic architecture", although what exactly that meant, not even his closest followers could fully explain. The photo at top shows me chilling in Mr Wright's favorite chair in his magnificent Garden Room, while behind me, other tourists check out FLW's private bedroom. All photos taken by my wife, Ling, with our Canon Elph digital camera.

Hey Zach---

Glad that you and your wife had a good time. Looks like a lovely place that you visited. Did any of the other tourists recognize you? Or were they too caught up in the beauty of the place to notice standing next to the Gremlinologist? LOL!

Later,
J.D.
