Taliesin West

We are pleased to announce that MoreLab’s Matthew Passmore will be participating in a week-long residency and public lecture series at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture located at Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Sonoran desert compound outside Scottsdale, Arizona.

The lecture is free and open to the public on Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 7pm at Taliesin West.

For the remainder of the week, Matthew will be meeting with students and faculty in an informal context to discuss the evolving interplay between tactical/user-generated urbanism, public art and the governmental agencies and organizations tasked with generating the form and content of our urban public spaces.

Matthew will be staying in the “Sun Cottage” – Wright’s private quarters at the Taliesin compound.  It’s nice! See below for pictures and stay tuned for more images from the residency.

What is architecture anyway? Is it the vast collection of the various buildings which have been built to please the varying tastes of the various lords of mankind? I think not. No, I know that architecture is life; or at least it is life itself taking form and therefore it is the truest record of life as it was lived in the world yesterday, as it is lived today or ever will be lived…So, architecture I know to be a Great Spirit.
— Frank Lloyd Wright
