Arizona – Taliesin West

Famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright lived in Taliesin West for a while. It became the School of Architecture, located in Scottsdale, Arizona. With over 620 acres of property, Wright’s students continuously expanded the sprawling area with unique styles.

The structure of the walls consists of local rocks from the desert, stacked together by wooden forms, and then filled with concrete. This construction came to be because Wright felt strongly about nature and using materials that were in the area. He also enjoyed the use of natural light, which also features heavily in how he designed the building.
