…following quote taken from the The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation website..  “The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation opens The SC Johnson Gallery: At Home with Frank Lloyd Wright as a long term exchange of Write’s artifacts and collection.

Taliesin West was Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece of 1937. It was his personal winter home, student retreat, architecture school, studio, and architectural campus. Located in the Sonoran desert at the foothills of the McDowell Mountains in northeast Scottsdale, the area offers a variety of dramatic south western views and inspirational building design. In a visit you will experience Wright’s intimate knowledge integrated indoor and outdoor spaces.

In the winter of 1938, 70-year-old Frank Lloyd Wright purchased 160 acres at the foot of the McDowell Mountains in present-day Scottsdale to transform into his winter home and studio. Inspired by the southwestern landscape, Wright sought a ‘nobly simple’ architecture in Taliesin West. Primitive but elegant, Taliesin West’s monumental masonry feels as much an ancient ruin unearthed from the Sonoran desert, as the twentieth-century icon of modern architecture that it has become.”
