This year marks 80 years since renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright staked his claim in the desert foothills of the McDowell Mountains and began building his winter home and studio Taliesin West, thus creating his Arizona legacy. 

Wright first arrived in Arizona in 1928 to consult on the Arizona Biltmore resort. The following year, he worked on the promising San Marcos-In-The-Desert project in Chandler that was squashed by The Great Depression.
