Photographing Taliesin West (II)

Steve Minor’s Flickr photos of Taliesin West portray a building that is full of sun and color. His photos show clearly how Taliesin West fits in the landscape without being dull and camouflaged; instead, its specificity to the site actually beautifies both the site and building itself.



Concerts and other performances were common at Taliesin West. There were many evenings in which the Fellowship, as it was known, would gather and enjoy music played by the apprentices.



The Garden Room is one of the most photographed rooms in Taliesin West. With its long walls and low ceiling, it should feel claustrophobic, but because of all the natural light flooding the space it feels light and spacious.




One of Wright’s architectural philosophies was to unify buildings with nature, and one of the ways he sought to do this was by bringing the nature in the buildings. The use of glass also helps to minimize the difference between interior and exterior space.
