Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece Taliesin served as his residence and studio from 1911 until his death in 1959.

It remains home to the architectural school he founded in 1932, and to the offices of Taliesin architects.
Designed as a self-sustaining community for working, learning, and living, Taliesin was Wright’s ongoing laboratory for testing new architectural ideas.

As a result its buildings embody a profound spirit of experimentation and improvisation.
Robert Campbell, architect and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, has called Taliesin the "greatest single work of American art."
