Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, is pleased to provide one of the most unique educational experiences available in higher education. Our individualized program, stunning campuses, epic historic legacy, and dedicated faculty and staff combine to challenge and support the most ambitious students of architecture.
Highlights of our program include:
Students develop an increasingly individualized course of study through the phases of Foundation, Exploration, and Synthesis. Studies are monitored by faculty and visiting professionals. Learning is demonstrated through projects and work produced that replaces formal testing and is assessed by faculty. Student portfolios provide documentation of applied knowledge acquired each season, reviewed by faculty committees with a holistic approach to the student’s cumulative learning.
Students work directly with architects on specialized and case-study projects as a component of the hands-on learning experience.
Students reside on-campus, and participate with tasks involved in maintaining the School community. Education at Taliesin is a way of life.
Students can experience the essence of shelter and the role of the Architect by designing and building experimental, environmentally sensitive dwellings which they inhabit upon completion.
The School operates from two campuses seasonally, taking advantage of mild winters at Taliesin West in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert and temperate summers at Taliesin in Wisconsin’s pastoral hills. Both campuses are surrounded by natural open spaces, emphasizing the deep connection between architecture and the environment.
As Dean of this dynamic School, I invite you to learn about our program, visit our campuses, and apply to join us as a student.
