According to my tour guide at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, it was Frank Lloyd Wright’s third wife, Olgivanna, who suggested that he open a studio in a warmer state as a place to spend winter. (His winter studio is in Spring Green, Wisconsin.)
Looking north at the studio (left) and dorms (above).
Our wonderful tour guide. She graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
