The School is at home in the historic sites of Taliesin and Taliesin West. Following the tradition started by Frank Lloyd Wright, students spend time at both locations, learning to build and design in diverse landscapes and architectural settings. Students spend seven months of the year at Taliesin West, located in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale, Arizona and the remaining five month at Taliesin, in the rural surroundings of Spring Green, Wisconsin. While at Taliesin West, students have the opportunity to share in another tradition; designing and constructing desert shelters in which they live during their time in Arizona. The Wright-designed homes and campuses of Taliesin and Taliesin West, which each attract over 100,000 visitors a year, provide the perfect setting for an education based on Frank Lloyd Wrights buildings, theories, and the traditions in which he worked.
We want to change the world through architecture. We believe that architecture should unfold out of our landscapes, our materials, our craft, and the traditions of organic architecture. We will be the boldest experimental architecture school in the world.
