virtual technology practices have partnered with the frank lloyd wright foundation to scan wright’s winter home and studio, ‘taliesin west’. this project marks the first wright property that one can experience using these scanning technologies. the foundation allows the public to freely ‘roam’ the property and explore the interior of taliesin west in an effort to provide a deeper understanding of the architect’s philosophy on organic architecture and how it comes to life.
leica geosystems, multivista and matterport make use of powerful 3D imaging laser scanning technology to recreate the house and property in full detail and from every dimension. the frank lloyd wright foundation elaborates: ‘experience wright’s usage of compression and release as you enter the living room. go to the land bridge and view the desert landscape. take in the structural desert masonry as you wander the hallways and pass unique elements such as the light fixtures and furniture, most of which were designed by wright himself.’
president and CEO of the frank lloyd wright foundation, stuart graff, comments: ‘true to our mission, the frank lloyd wright foundation is dedicated to preserving taliesin and taliesin west for future generations. through our partnership with leica geosystems, we’re able to carry our mission, and wright’s vision into the future, by making taliesin west available to the world so they can experience his ideas, architecture and design in new ways.‘
