12621 N. Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd., Scottsdale, AZ 85259

Known as one of architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpieces, Taliesin West was built in 1937 as Wright's winter home. Still inhabited by a team of architectural experts and students, Taliesin West is a living desert complex in northeast Scottsdale at the base of the McDowell Mountains. The exterior is a juxtaposition of massive stone masonry and a breezy canvas-covered redwood framework. Interior spaces feature a cinema, music pavilion and theater as well as Wright’s private living quarters and drafting studio. Taliesin West’s spaces are linked by scenic terraces, gardens and walkways, which overlook desert landscapes and downtown Phoenix in the distance. Daily guided tours are kept small and last from one to three hours.
