Travel with us to Arizona for a trip balancing history, art, iconic structures – and recreation!

Here are just some of the places and experiences we anticipate:

Taliesin West is the star attraction – Frank Lloyd Wright’s beloved home and winter laboratory. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site and National Historic Landmark nestled in the desert foothills of the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale, Arizona. Established in 1937 It was built and maintained almost entirely by Wright and his apprentices, making it among the most personal of the architect’s creations.

Taliesin West was architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and school in the desert from 1937 until his death in 1959 at the age of 91. Today it is the main campus of the School of Architecture at Taliesin and houses the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Photo by Jill Richards.

Canal Convergence – Our visit coincides with “Canal Convergence” a nighttime week-long installation of site-specific light art, performances, workshops and more. Large-scale public artworks created by the artists from around the world and locally will illuminate the Scottsdale Waterfront along the Arizona Canal each evening. We’ll be staying in easy walking distance!

Arcosanti –Likely the most unique place you’ve ever seen – an experimental town started in 1970 by Italian-American architect Paolo Soleri. Arcosanti explores the concept of “arcology,” combining architecture and ecology. It blends social interaction and accessibility with sound environmental principles, such as minimal resource use and access to the natural environment. The town has a renowned molten bronze bell foundry as well as artist studios, permanent residents, and education facilities.
