Once I quenched my immediate thirst to know how to pronounce Taliesin and what it means, I was blown away by the other information about this home and workshop of Frank Lloyd Wright. (The word is Welsh for shining brow and is pronounced “tali-a-sin). I spent two hours on a tour learning about the life and loves of Wright. First of all, this home burned almost to the ground twice. The first time there were seven murders committed in the arsen by one of Wright’s servants. The second time was due to the force of nature through a lightening strike. During his life, Wright was married three times and his second wife was murdered in the first fire. Taliesin was not, in my opinion, a spectacular example of Wright architecture because it was his home and not designed for a client. But the place is full of history relating to his life. While living here he often used the property as an experiment utilizing the labor of architecture apprentices living on the property. It is currently being used as a location for the fully accredited Wright School of Architecture. Students have the opportunity to live at Taliesin and study in this historic location. How cool is that? Anyway, watch for the movie about his love affair and marriage to his second wife and her untimely demise. The book Loving Frank was bought by Lion’s Gate and is currently being developed. I have ordered the book because this will really help me feel what part of his life was like.
