Frank Lloyd Wright’s impact on Arizona architecture goes on. A community going up on one of the last big developable parcels of land in Cave Creek has his influence all over it.
The 1,000-acre Cahava Springs will have 230 homes on its rolling desert hills topped with saguaros, so almost 80 percent of the community will be preserved open space. The homes in Cahava Springs are designed by Scottsdale’s Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Taliesin School of Architecture.
Renderings show the houses with straight lines and flat roofs designed to be part of the desert instead of placed on top of it, a classic Wright mantra.
Many natural materials are being used to build the homes, another one of the architect’s design necessities.
