History of architect’s Taliesin estate experiments revisited

On July 12, Wade House will feature a presentation of Keiran Murphy’s “How Do You Restore the Work of a Lifetime? Frank Lloyd Wright, the Taliesin Estate, and Taliesin Preservation.”

“Taliesin was unique in that Wright used the structures on the estate as experiments, and they come from every decade of his career,” said David Warner, site director at Wade House Historic Site. “This presentation will look at the buildings on the estate, including the recently completed restoration of the large room of his house that he called “the Loggia.”

Keiran Murphy has been a historical researcher for Taliesin Preservation, Inc. for nearly 25 years.

She is involved in the research, preservation and interpretation of the Taliesin Estate, including five structures designed by the architect.

She interprets archival images, drawings, oral histories and personal accounts for the historical research at Taliesin Preservation, Inc writes analyses of the historical development of architecturally important sites, seeks out and tracks material related to the development of these sites, and analyzes photographic materials, drawings, correspondence, land titles and more.
