The Valley architecture school established by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright will close its doors.

The School of Architecture at Taliesin will shutter after the current semester at the end of June, in the wake of a Jan. 25 decision by its governing board after the school was unable to reach an agreement with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to keep it open.

The school currently has about 30 students enrolled.

The school, established in 1932, was previously known as the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture until it was renamed in 2017. Students split their time between Wright’s retreats housed at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, and Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin.
