Nothing by Wright in your city? Consider hiring an architect to custom design a new home in the spirit of the master. Without doubt, the premier firm for Wright inspired creations is Taliesin Architects (TA). Continuing the architectural practice established by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1893, TA is based in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Taliesin design studios in Arizona and Wisconsin also provide a living laboratory for the training of apprentices in the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. John Rattenbury, a protégé of the late Frank Lloyd Wright, is the Taliesin architect responsible for the airy, Wright-like home chosen as the Life Magazine Dream House for 1997. For examples of modern-day architecture inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, see Rattenbury's book, A Living Architecture : Frank Lloyd Wright and Taliesin Architects (compare prices).

While not duplicates of Wright's work, many of these plans resemble the rambling homes that Frank Lloyd Wright designed.
