Lonely Planet review
Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the seminal American architects of the 20th century. Taliesin West was his desert home and studio, built between 1938 and 1940. Still home to an architecture school and open to the public for guided tours, it's a prime example of organic architecture with buildings incorporating elements and structures found in surrounding nature. During the popular Insights Tour , a docent lead visitors to Wright's office with its slanted canvas roof, the grand stone-walled living room where you can sit on original Wright-designed furniture, and the half-sunken Cabaret Theater. This informative tour feels much quicker than its 90 minutes. Shorter and longer tours are also available.
