The Arizona counterpart of Taliesin in Wisconsin, Taliesin West functioned as Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home, studio, and architectural campus. Luckily for folks interested in architecture and design, you can tour the Sonoran Desert masterpiece he built from 1937 to 1959 in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains northeast of Scottsdale.

The National Historic Landmark is open for public tours every day, except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tours range from one to three hours. You can even take architecture apprentice courses there and get the inside intel on how Wright worked to integrate outdoor and indoor spaces into a harmonious, distinctive whole.

And, of course, you can shop. Anneliese's Bookstore at Taliesin West stocks the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® products and books by and about Frank Lloyd Wright, his life, and his award-winning work. See the online catalog here.
