Taliesin West 227

The Pfeiffer House design (1971-72) is based on the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Ralph Jes­ter Residence originally intended for Palos Ver­des, Ca­li­for­nia (1938). The circular Jester House was never executed, but Frank Lloyd Wright Foun­da­tion ar­chi­vist director Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer used the design as a launching-off point for a residence for his father Arthur and served as Bruce's residence for many years. The home was made available for conference attendees to experience and enjoy. What follows are photos of the various spaces in and around this unique home:

It was a true treat to experience this rarely-seen work that was based on an iconic Wright design. It capped off an already memorable day at Taliesin West. Thanks to Mark Hertzberg for sharing his photos!
