Photo: Suspended Student Shelter at Taliesen West

This is another photo of what was our favorite of the student shelters at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesen West School of Architecture.

The student was very creative.  He or she suspended a cube from a pole using cables so the living area was above the ground.

This would have the benefit of keeping away from scorpions, snakes or other creatures in the desert.

I apologize that this iPhone photo does not clearly show the desert below the shelter, but I had to take this photo in low light, pointed into the light.  But, of course, doing so enabled a capture of a typically delightful Arizona sunset.

This week we are showing photos of the Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia, Argentina, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Maybe the architecture student who designed this suspended shelter went on to design bridges.

I like this one too, especially the idea of keeping the scorpions at bay.

I hadn't thought about the "scorpion" issue until you mentioned it. That would not be a fun thing to deal with.
