Born on June 8, 1867, Frank Lloyd Wright is recognized as “the greatest American architect of all time” by the American Institute of Architects. Wright designed well over a thousand homes and buildings, five hundred thirty-two of which were built. Recently, ten of his most famous buildings have been nominated by the United States for inclusion to the UNESCO World Heritage list. This website presented by Taliesin Preservation, Inc. provides a virtual tour of one of those buildings, Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin.
