Taliesin and Taliesin West


Taliesin and Taliesin West

▪ homes and architectural schools
      the two homes, as well as architectural schools, of the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright (Wright, Frank Lloyd). Originally built in 1911, Taliesin, located near Spring Green, Wisconsin, U.S., was rebuilt after fires in 1914 and 1925. Taliesin West, near Scottsdale, Arizona, was begun in 1937 as a winter home for Wright and his students. Wright was of Welsh descent and named his homes after the Welsh bard Taliesin. Both structures were continually renovated and added to until Wright's death in 1959, after which they continued to be occupied by members of the Wright Foundation. In 1985, in accordance with the will of Wright's third wife, his remains were exhumed from their resting place in Spring Green and moved to Taliesin West. Damage from a storm at Taliesin in 1998 required extensive repairs.
