This is an artist's dream! A structure so abnormal, so modern, you can't help but wonder who built it! Who was he? He was Frank Lloyd Wright, architect extraordinaire. Taliesin West is his second studio, as his first studio Taliesin burnt down when his chef went insane and went on a murderous rampage. The story is full of murder and tragedy. But out of the ashes, Wright rose like the Phoenix and transplanted himself to the city of Scottsdale. Fortunately, I had done my research and discovered his address. The beautiful brickwork sticks out from the droll desert land and brings emotion the eyes of many visitors. Unfortunately, the main building was closed for a conference, but the gift shop was still open. However, I can say that I have been to Taliesin West, for the whole place was truly designed by Wright. I walked away with a postcard booklet and an info packet. To my shock was how advanced his structures were. Be sure to visit this place to find the same for yourself! You won't regret it! But be sure to go a couple hours before closing. Look up the hours and go during that set time! It is truly a stop for all people!
