I introduced Taliesin West in Part 1, and this is a pictorial continuation of the tour which details this magnificent property which served as a summer workplace to preserve Frank Lloyd Wright’s health while at the same time advancing his learning and ideas. The man lived a full and at times controversial life, and he was no stranger to contrarianism. There was no disputing that he was a genius of sorts, and in terms of architectural visualization was unparalleled among his peers.
If you were one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s clients who accepted his design without any modifications, you earned the red square embedded into your property. The influence of Asian art abounds about the grounds, and Wright’s love of music prompted him to incorporate acoustically pleasing internal spaces to complement his well known visual fusion of the inside and outside worlds.
