Leica BLK360 helps deliver the online experience for Taliesin West, the winter home and studio of the iconic architect

Leica Geosystems has teamed up with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to create a number of immersive 3D experiences featuring the iconic architect’s properties to give viewers the chance to experience them as if they were actually there.

Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and studio, is the first property that will be made available using data captured from the Leica BLK360 laser scanner as well as Multivista construction documentation services and Matterport 3D Showcase technology. Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Wisconsin home, will follow later

The online Taliesin West experience goes beyond traditional 3D renderings, documentation, and virtual online tours by capturing the property from every dimension – the exterior grounds and the interior home along with architectural details including 3D views and floorplans.

“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 out our mission, and Wright’s vision into the future, by making Taliesin West available to the world so it can experience his ideas, architecture and design in new ways,” said Stuart Graff, president and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
