The works of late American architect Frank Lloyd Wright can be found all over the United States, and two of his premises are open for public visit. For allowing more people to understand Wright’s philosophy on organic architecture and how it comes to life, his winter home and studio Taliesin West in Scottsdale has been open to public virtually using new immersive technology.
The online Taliesin West experience was created using technology and services from Leica Geosystems, Multivista and Matterport. The entire area of Taliesin West was captured with the BLK360 from Leica Geosystems, which is the world’s smallest and lightest imaging laser scanner. As User of the virtual experience is able to wander around the entire space freely, getting inside different rooms and offices. The image quality is exceptionally high and you would be able to see the pattern on the stones when you zoom in. Some of the areas are even supported with virtual reality experience when viewed in smartphone paired with Google Cardboard.
The digital experience is available on the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation website.
