In 1937, Frank Lloyd Wright purchased 160 acres of what would later expand to over 600 acres at the foot of the McDowell Mountains outside of Scottsdale, Arizona. Here, along with his family and fellows of his school, he established their winter retreat over the course of 22 years. They named it Taliesin West, distinguishing it from his residence in Wisconsin, known simply as Taliesin.
“Taliesin” is Welsh for “shining brow” and the Taliesin West Atom Brick set showcases the dynamic angles of the roof lines and floor plans of the campus. Builders gain an understanding of the land and structures that comprise the home and school in Scottsdale.
The ATOM Brick recreates FLLW’s iconic designs w parts 3/4 the size of standard building blocks (Lego-like) for incredible detail.
