Description
Frank Lloyd Wright's home in Wisconsin, Taliesin, was the longest ongoing architectural work of his career. From the time he started building Taliesin in 1911 until his death in 1959, he never stopped changing it or adding to it. Some of the most significant changes followed fires that struck the living areas in 1914 and 1925. Others were made on the spur of the moment as a new idea captured Wright's imagination. Wright called the three versions of his home Taliesin I (1911-14), Taliesin II (1914-25), and Taliesin III (1925-59). Located on 600 acres, the 37,000-square-foot country estate includes living quarters, an office, drafting studio, farm buildings, and other structures. (Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation)
