In 2021, we begin our second season of successful virtual summer camp programs and are inviting forward-thinking collaborators from our global community to teach students ranging from ages 8 to 18. In our Taliesin summer camps, we guide youth in exploring and experimenting at the intersection of architecture, agriculture, culture, and nature.

(Design) Curriculum for Change – How could we live now?

Taliesin Preservation engages in innovative cultural and educational programming at Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright’s 800-acre estate and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the rural Driftless hills of Wisconsin.

Taliesin’s education team continuously strives to bring the principles of Organic Architecture as embedded at Taliesin to students of all ages and disciplines.

Architecture education as an integrated discipline today is invaluable for young minds. It allows students to understand their natural and built environments and teaches how to sustain those environments.

Building on the experiments and spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin Fellowship that came before us, we believe in continued exploration and experimentation at the intersection of cultural disciplines that define both everyday life and the most significant challenges of our time.

We engage with students in the following ways to help them answer for themselves the question of How could we live now?

Learning and Teaching
We develop educational immersions that provide unique opportunities for hands-on exploration, integrated perspectives, and nurturing social cooperation and environmental responsibility.

Experimenting and Innovating
We support advances in experimentation and innovation at the convergence of architecture, agriculture, culture, and nature, reframing an organic approach for the 21st century.

Gathering and Questioning
We convene a diverse and global community of people committed to asking the shared questions about life and how we might build a better way of life for future generations.
