I say Frank Lloyd Wright. You say Falling Water. Prairie Style. Taliesin. Taliesin West. And the Biltmore in Phoenix.
Wright pioneered the use of concrete block as a building material and enlisted a local artist to create the emblematic modern palm frond motifs seen throughout the hotel. It is literally everywhere. Elevator doors, pressed glass lights inset into the wall blocks, stained glass and carpet. The man committed.
Here’s what I love… taking a trek to a design mecca and having tuna crudo and Eggs Benedict. Nothing more chic than brunch at the Biltmore.
