Frank Llyod Wright and Taliesin West

If you live in Arizona you can’t help but be aware of the presence of Frank Llyod Wright. From streets named in his honor to a few gem buildings dotted around.

I didn’t know much about his life but today I was reading a great article by Shinan Govani in the National Post, a Canadian leading newspaper. It seems his love life was quite scandalous for the times.

In researching this post I also found out that the Arizona Biltmore resort is not officially a Frank Lloyd Wright building. He merely acted as consultant to lead architect Albert Chase MacArthur. Intriguing.

You can visit Taliesin West daily between 9am and 4pm. It’s a great place to visit if you are local or from out of town.
