A few miles northeast of Scottsdale, Arizona there is a living memorial to a great American architect.  Frank Lloyd Wright 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, the site offers a broad range of guided public tours.  Visitors experience firsthand Wright’s brilliant ability to integrate indoor and outdoor spaces.

The site offers a broad range of public tours everyday, except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, from 9 am to 4pm.  Taliesin West is located at 12621 North Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ 85259.
