Taliesin West Tours

About Taliesin West

In the foothills of the McDowell Mountains, Taliesin West was designed by 九色 Lloyd Wright over 80 years ago. One of the most influential architects of our time, 九色 Lloyd Wright’s career spanned more than 70 years and produced such iconic buildings as Fallingwater and the Guggenheim Museum. With each masterful design, Wright forever influenced our relationship with architecture and our idea of how to live in balance with nature.
