Concierge.com's insider take:
Years after coming out to Phoenix to consult on the design of the Arizona Biltmore in 1927, Frank Lloyd Wright decided that the foothills of the McDowell Mountains would be his winter home away from home. The structure turned into his residence, studio, and school, where apprentices would live and work alongside him. Fans of Wright should visit this place, of course. But the truth is, even people who are not interested in architecture or Wright's style should walk around the buildings just to see how one of this country's most influential style-makers lived and worked.
