Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece Taliesin served as his residence and studio from 1911 until his death in 1959.  It remains home to the architectural school he founded in 1932, and to the offices of Taliesin architects.  Designed as a self-sustaining community for working, learning, and living, Taliesin was Wright’s ongoing laboratory for testing new architectural ideas.  As a result its buildings embody a profound spirit of experimentation and improvisation.  Robert Campbell, architect and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, has called Taliesin the "greatest single work of American art."

This interactive CD-ROM contains a comprehensive two-hour multimedia overview of the entire Taliesin estate by Susan Jacobs Lockhart. Lockhart, who joined the Fellowship in 1958 to live and work as an artist, educator, and musician, draws upon her forty-five years at Taliesin to provide insight into the buildings’ histories as well as Wright’s life and career.  Additional video interviews with Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, and other Taliesin Fellowship members who lived and worked with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin, are also included.  The commentaries are profusely illustrated with historical photographs from the FLLW Archives, as well as new photographs commissioned exclusively for this CD-ROM.  Also included is an extensive interactive virtual tour that contains a unique cross-referenced archive of photographs, 360-degree virtual reality panoramas, and many of Wright’s original drawings (sketches, perspectives, plans, sections, elevations, and details.

The Planet Architecture series of e-archives provide virtual tours which transcend the capabilities of traditional media. Utilizing an intuitive multi-referenced interface, e-archives allow users self-directed experiences through a comprehensive collection of videos, photographs, VR panoramic views, drawings, and renderings.

About the Author:

Susan Jacobs Lockhart, the daughter of Wright clients who built two important houses, Usonia I (1936) and Solar Hemicycle (1943), now National Landmark sites, was a friend of the Fellowship from an early age. She joined the Fellowship with her first husband in 1958, after graduating in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin and working in New York. At Taliesin, her creativity in the arts was first expressed as a solo and chamber pianist and then as principal dancer with the Taliesin Festival of Music and Dance from 1958 to1970. Through apprenticeship, she became the architectural firm's graphic designer for the next ten years and, since the 1980's, has created her own abstract geometric designs in leaded and deep-carved glass, stained wood and fabric applique. Her work has been exhibited in galleries in Arizona, Wisconsin, California and South Carolina. Tableware and small glass sculptures are licensed products marketed nationwide.

Lockhart's wide variety of activities in the Fellowship have ranged from being a cook, musician, and member of the School faculty, to membership on the Boards of The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Taliesin Preservation Inc and Taliesin Architects. She has served the community as a member of the Board of Directors of Rural Musicians Forum, Bach Dancing and Dynamite Chamber Ensemble, Jazz in Arizona and Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy. She has also served on the American Players Theatre Advisory Committee and Arts and Culture Visioning Committee, Scottsdale, AZ. Lockhart regularly organizes cultural events and productions open to the public at both Taliesin and Taliesin West. She and her late husband, Kenneth Lockhart, together designed and built a residence and studio at Taliesin West.

Lockhart regularly speaks and writes on architectural subjects, relating to Frank Lloyd Wright and her own work in architectural glass, transformational space, and sustainable architecture, throughout the United States and abroad.
