Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water

This is actually one of my favorite residential homes in The United States. It's in Bear Pun, Pennsylvania and is designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The house was built in 1939.

It's one of the best examples of symbiosis between architecture and nature, a true masterpiece.

the western pennsylvania conservancy owns and operates the house and surrounding forest...

i like it on the outside...but the inside shows that it was design by a man of short stature... if you are anywhere around 6 feet tall its a difficult house to manuver through without some care given to doorways and ceilings

great house though

This house realy stands the test of time (design-wise). The design seems fresh and modern in any decade, be it the 30s, 70s, or today. Structuraly, the house is in bad shape, and millions of dollars are being spent to keep the cantalievered portions from collapsing.

Simply stunning, have wanted this house ever since I stumbled accross a thumb of it on Encarta. Didn't know it was FLW back then either, when I found out my love for it grew even more
