Taliesin West (1938, Scottsdale, Arizona). Wright experimented with architectural techniques on his winter home and studio over the course of two decades. He developed a stone masonry out of boulders and rocks found around the site. The property houses the offices of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation; the resident staff and students who live and work at Taliesin and Taliesin West; and the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.
