Product Description:

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S TALIESIN WEST offers one of the most penetrating looks at the world-famous architect's life and career ever documented on film before tightening its focus to the construction of the title, a geometrically jaw-dropping studio that doubled and tripled as Wright's winter home and the primary campus for his architecture school. Taking advantage of Arizona's mild winter climate, Taliesin West has tent-like roofs that allow its rooms to be illuminated by natural light. It was built with the sand and stone of the mountainous region in which it sits. This comprehensive documentary also includes a panoramic interactive tour.

Product Description:

Disk 1: Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright s studio, school of architecture, and home in the Arizona desert, is universally recognized as a modern masterpiece. It began as a desert camp in 1937 and continued to evolve throughout his life. Today it represents the summation of Wright s ideals of Organic Architecture an approach to building appropriate to place, appropriate to time, and appropriate to man. In order to better understand the enduring meaning and significance of Taliesin West, Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, first provides and in-depth overview of Wright s remarkable life and career. He then focuses on Taliesin West, relating everything from its origins, innovative use of materials, and experimental construction methods, to Wright s orchestration of architectural concepts. Mr. Pfeiffer conjures an intimate portrait of Taliesin West from the perspective of someone who has lived and worked there for nearly six decades.
Disk 2: The Interactive Tour represents the most comprehensive documentation of Taliesin West ever assembled. It brings together a comprehensive collection of contemporary and historical photographs, 360 degree virtual reality panoramas, and Wright's original drawings, to create an immersive experience of the entire complex. Special Features: 52 minute segment on Wright's life and career, 30 minute segment on Taliesin West illustrated with rare archival drawings and historical photographs from the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives as well as newly commissioned photographs of Taliesin West, and 140 photograph slide show featuring exteriors, interiors, and architectural details.
