Exploring Taliesin...


Visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's estate in Spring Green, Wisconsin proved to be one of the highlights of my summer.  Wright began construction on Taliesin in  1911 and the home was in a constant state of renovation and change until Wright passed away in 1959.  The estate, whose name means shining brow in Welsh, stands as an example of ongoing architectural experiment that made Wright's work unique and unforgettable.  Sadly the home's history is tainted by two tragic fires and a gruesome mass murder, but remains a school of architecture to this very day with students working preserve this iconic 30,000 square foot estate. Simply fascinating.
