    Taliesen West – Insight Tour and Desert Walk

    Buses will depart hotel at 1:00 p.m. and return around 5:30 p.m.

    Please note that lunch is NOT included

    Taliesen West, American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s internationally famous desert masterpiece is located on 600 acres of rugged Sonoran desert at the foothills of the McDowell Mountains. The 90 minute Insight Tour showcases Wright’s brilliant ability to integrate indoor and outdoor spaces. The Cabaret Cinema, Music Pavilion, Seminar Theater, and Wright’s private office are linked by dramatic terraces, gardens, and walkways overlooking the rugged Sonoran desert and valley below. A visit to the dramatic Living Room is also included.

    Following the Insight Tour, we will adjourn outside for a guided walk around the Sonoran Desert surrounding Taliesen West. We will hear of Wright’s impressions of the desert and the architectural challenges it presented. Visitors will also learn about the native building materials found on the site and see firsthand the native vegetation and landforms that were translated into design elements for Taliesen West.

    Sign up for this event on the enclosed registration form. The fee for this event is $35.00. A voucher will be enclosed in your registration packet. A bus will pick you up at our hotel, transport you to Taliesen West and return you to the hotel later that afternoon. Attendance will be limited to 32 people. Pre-registration is required.
