Abstract:

Nestled among the cactus thickets and dry washes of the Arizona desert lies an intriguing landscape of architectural experiments. Sometimes encompassing a paloverde tree or suspended many feet above the desert floor, these small dwellings, conceived by architecture students as alternatives to tents and dormitory rooms, embraceand in their own way, celebratethe natural, rugged terrain surrounding Frank Lloyd Wrights Taliesin West. The earliest shelters were created by adventurous apprentices at the Taliesin Fellowship, a school for architects established by Frank Lloyd Wright in the mid-1930s. After Wrights death, a more conventional schoolthe Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecturewas established, and the practice of designing and building a personal dwelling became a unique feature of the schools curriculum.
