Frank's Place IIb: Exterior Views and the Prow

Yucca and view to east


Pool, fountain, and center of main building

View to east toward Garden room and Sunset Terrace

View toward kitchen area of main building

View to the northeast, toward the kitchen and Garden Room.

View to the southwest, in the direction of Camelback Mountain and the Valley of the Sun. Construction of power lines caused Frank Lloyd Wright to "turn his back on the valley" and re-orient Taliesin West away from encroaching civilization.

View in a generally easterly direction from the Prow, in the general direction of the Superstition Mountains to the east of the Valley of the Sun

View from the Prow to the north and east, showing the southwest and west side of the Garden Room

Hill view to the east/northeast beyond the Garden (Living) room.

Main building at Taliesin West, with drafting room to left and kitchen at right with dining room beyond. The pool in front also served as an emergency source of water for fighting fires.
