FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT’S TALIESIN
EXPERIENCE. EXPLORE. EXPRESS.
Taliesin is the home, studio, school, and 800-acre agricultural estate of Frank Lloyd Wright, located near Spring Green, WI. With buildings from nearly every decade of Wright’s life from the 1890s to the 1950s, Taliesin is one of the most signi cant architectural anthologies in the world and is nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Taliesin is the heart of a series of building that Wright designed for himself and his family members on the estate. Other buildings include: Romeo & Juliet Windmill (1896), Tan-y-Deri (1907), Hillside Theater & Drafting Studio (1932), Midway Barn (1920), and the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center (1953).
The concept of Taliesin dates back to the 1800s when Wright’s ancestors emigrated from Wales to this location, in search of a better life. Through progressive education and transformative ideas, Taliesin became a source of inspiration for how Frank Lloyd Wright sat the world; a world where nature, art, community, and work are integrated to nurture each individual's growth.
Taliesin Preservation aims not only to educate about Wright’s legacy, but Taliesin’s legacy, in its entirety. Wright was a farmer, architect, graphic designer, landscape architect, writer, musician,

art collector, and educator. We strive to preserve Taliesin’s natural, cultural, and built environments but create a place for others to apply the same spirit of innovation and give guests the opportunity to have a more beautiful life.
For a truly immersive experience for guests to experience and explore, Taliesin hosts farm dinners, chamber music concerts, lectures, art workshops, and so much more. Taliesin continues to be a laboratory for individuals to come together for thought exchange, experimenting with materials and space, and addressing the human needs of our time. With a “hands-on, minds-on” philosophy of living through experience, exploration, and expression is crucial to an individual's own learning and growth.
