Taliesin West is a spectacular piece of architecture that is a credit to its creator, the acclaimed designer Frank Lloyd Wright. Located in Scottsdale, Arizona, Taliesin West features a series of intricately-designed structures.

Here, Frank Lloyd Wright lived over the course of each winter from 1937 until his death in 1959. The collection of buildings features a variety of unusual architectural techniques. Even after designing Taliesin West, Wright continued to make modifications. As such, the buildings were altered substantially right up until his death. Most of these amendments were undertaken by students of the school itself.

In 1982, the site was designated a national Historic Landmark on account of its unorthodox design. These odd buildings contrast pleasingly with the arid landscape of Arizona. Today, the buildings of Taliesin West still serve the purpose for which they were originally designed, as they currently provide living, working and educational facilities for an architectural firm.
