I've seen this project in The Drawings of FLLW. The notation at the bottom says Taliesin Associated Architects and not Frank Lloyd Wright; and it specifies that the project was sort of followed out based on sketches by Wright.

Taschen doesn't have the plans, neither does it catalog the project -- at least that I can find.

The aerial view is published in Io's book "Man in Possession of His Earth" on pp 124-5. The captions says that it was one of the last commissions to come to Taliesin before FLW died, and that Wes Peters based the design on sketches made by FLW.
