Description: Taliesin Architects and The Frank Lloyd Wright Tradition. The Story of a Unique Arizona Fesing Firm. How does a team of Arizona architects manage to become involved with a highway construction project in Colorado? What can the followers of Frank Lloyd Wright contribute to the design of highway bridges and alignments of roadways? Actually, the basis for this kind of work for the architects and planners of Taliesin was established many years ago. Frank Lloyd Wright had written, "Imagine... highways of generous, safe width and always easy grade... roads now themselves great architecture... as they unite and separate, separate again and unite ... well-considered green covered cuts and fills healed by good planting of indigenous ground cover... Moving road-lines that are laid down sympathetic to terrain, threading hills and plains... curved roads always for curved country... the great open road made beautiful and safe for continually flowing traffic...” Includes twelve photographs.
