Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West is Scottsdale's only National Historic Landmark as well as an Unesco World Heritage Site. It serves as a prime example of Wright’s organic architecture in that the structures are built of the rocks and sand of the Sonoran Desert and melds to the lower McDowell Mountains.
The grounds and buildings were constructed over a period of approximately twenty years by Frank Lloyd Wright and his apprentices. Set amid a Sonoran Desert Preserve of 491 acres, Taliesin West tours wind through provocative terraces, landscaped gardens and walkways commanding dramatic views of Camelback Mountain and the Valley of the Sun.
Choose the self-guided audio tour if you prefer to walk the site without a guide. The tour will guide you through the historic core and you will even listen to a recording of Frank Lloyd Wright himself. The 60-minute Audio Tour is an indoor AND outdoor tour that uses your own smartphone and headphones.
