Taliesin West

“For the designing of our buildings, certain forms already abounded… tremendous drifts and heaps of sun-burned desert rocks were nearby to be used. … We devised a light canvas covered redwood framework resting upon this massive stone masonry that belonged to the mountain slopes all around. On a fair day, when these white tops and side flaps were flung open, the desert air and the birds flew clear through.”

~Frank Lloyd Wright
