Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 20, 1982):
This desert complex contains the winter home, office and school of architecture designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Often acclaimed as one of his masterworks, this complex, along with Taliesin (East) near Spring Green, Wisconsin (also a NHL), expresses Wright's educational theories and vision of society, as well as his mature architectural concepts.

Condition:
The landmark is in good condition. There is some wear and tear as a result of some 120,000 visitors per year.

No significant changes since 2004.

Recommendation/Change since last report:
Roof repairs are scheduled in 2006 for two of the buildings. Infrastructure upgrades of the plumbing system are scheduled for 2007.
