schema:description""The interconnected structures he designed for Taliesin West were built of volcanic stone set in concrete, with redwood braces supporting canvas roofs and flaps that opened out to the desert and mountains beyond, providing both ventilation and a seamless connection to the landscape. Strategically placed petroglyphs, remnants of the ancient Hohokam who had once peopled the area, imbue the complex with a resonant link to the history of the region."--Jacket."@en
schema:description""Acclaimed architectural photographer Ezra Stoller had a special rapport with Wright, and photographed much of the architect's work at Wright's request. Stoller's color and black-and-white photographs of Taliesin West, taken over the course of two visits to the complex, present a vision of Wright's desert homestead at once austere and luxuriant."--BOOK JACKET. "Neil Levine, a leading scholar of Wright's work and a board member of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, provides an introductory essay describing the complex and its significance."--Jacket."@en
