Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West

Today began chilly and clear as we wrestled with the GPS and sub-optimal signage to find Frank Lloyd Wright‘s famous Taliesin West complex in the foothills north-east of Phoenix.  Mr. Wright’s designs are always fascinating and in this desert setting the Taliesin West structure is majestic in a subtle way, less visually compelling than Falling Water in Pennsylvania but somehow captivating in its tranquility.  We were in a small tour group of six people and the morning light added a lot to the wonderful angles of the buildings.  Additionally, there were scores of  elegant sculptures, many by Heloise Crista, adorning nooks, table, and ledges both inside and out.  All in all it was a lovely 90-minute stroll.
