Summary
Taliesin and Taliesin West both included a residence for Wright and his family, a studio, living quarters for the apprentices of the Taliesin Fellowship, and communal rooms for dining, music, and the projection of films, but they were a study in contrasts in every other way. Taliesin was sited overlooking lush, contoured farmland, whereas Taliesin West was incorporated into the rugged, arid desert. Taliesin evoked protection with deep, hovering roofs, while Taliesin West seemed ephemeral with only translucent canvas overhead. The stimulation of these contrasts inspired and sustained Wright until his death in 1959. Today both sites are still in operation, housing the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture and Taliesin Architects
