Discussion Taliesin West Commentary

"A great and poetic building designed in subtle harmony with its magnificent setting of desert and mountains, and with deep intuitive feeling for the nature of the chosen materials and for the way man might best live under the hard, bright Arizona sun.

"Taliesin West is the winter home and workshop of Mr. Wright and his students, and was built almost entirely by the students themselves. Walls are concrete, but of a special kind: native boulders, red, yellow and gray, were laid in rough wooden forms and cement poured over. Above these colorful, variously tapered walls are the great redwood trusses which support canvas-covered roof flaps. Glass is unnecessary, as the canvas admits a softly diffused light."

—from Elizabeth Mock, ed. Built in the USA Since 1932. p84.

The Creator's Words

"Taliesin West is another one of those ventures in the general direction of the unknown in which this architect has so often indulged."

"There is probably more instruction concerning construction in the desert ways of plant life than in any books ever written."

—Frank Lloyd Wright. "Frank Lloyd Wright", The Architectural Forum, January, 1948, Vol 88 Number 1. p87.
