Water. Tree. Stone. Taliesin West.
One of the ubiquitous Frank Lloyd Wright statues in a stark environment.
The meeting room in the office of Taliesin West where Wright met with clients. The room was designed with canvas panels above and was intended to take advantage of the natural light as there was no electricity when it was built ca 1937.

I just love this shot as the tour guide appears to be holding the girders that form up the roof of the Taliesin West office.
To the right of the drafting building is the original dining hall. The dining hall was moved when the power lines went up and uglified the view.
The breezeway between the dining hall and the Wright living quarters.
More Chinese art restored for placement around the campus.
A beautiful bird stopped to visit on a cactus near Taliesin West.
The bird is looking about before rushing off to find the next insect.

The day room for the third Mrs. Frank Lloyd Wright. The doors are covered in canvas in keeping with FLW's insistence that this was desert living.
The pool beneath the old water tower that provided gravity pressure to the water supply.

The newer dining hall for faculty and students. The school only has approximately 35 students at any one time.
Frank Lloyd Wright was adamant about the connection between architecture and art and encouraged art in his students.
