Wright Sites in Arizona

Wright first came to Arizona in 1928 to consult on the design of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. He was immediately smitten with the desert landscape and began to spend more and more time in the state. In 1937, he established Taliesin West, his winter home and studio in Scottsdale. Taliesin West was the first of several architectural schools that Wright founded, and it became a major center of architectural education and research.

The Taliesin Fellowship was a group of apprentices who studied and worked with Wright at Taliesin West. The Fellowship was founded in 1937 and continued until Wright’s death in 1959. The Fellowship was a diverse group of students from all over the world, and they were all committed to learning Wright’s philosophy of organic architecture.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
