Taliesin West detour
Last week when we were in Phoenix we decided to take a quick tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West despite the heat (don't forget it's Arizona).
Check out how the glass window is cut to accommodate the shape of this ceramic piece! Wild.
One thing that became very clear to me was that the height of almost all of the rooms were designed for people under 5'8" height. How tour guide said that Wright was very short. The furniture was pretty cool to see, we saw most of the original chairs, tables, and furniture designed for the space. There were still people working in the classroom/studio...probably my favorite area. We weren't able to stay long in there so I don't have a good photo to show you.
Pretty cool bathroom even though it was a bit cramped. He seemed more into the gathering areas and less about the individual sleeping and bath accommodations.
