My ongoing architecture series, I feel, is beginning to wind down. There are just a few more posts that I want to include in this collection to show the complete range of Frank Lloyd Wright as a designer.
The next installment is known as Wright's most recognized work, if not his greatest masterpiece. It is called Fallingwater. Built over three years, from 1936-1938, the Japanese-inspired house sits on the banks of the Bear Run river in Mill Run, a southwestern Pennsylvania city.
Fallingwater brought Wright back to the forefront of modern architecture at the age of 70. It is the ultimate visual concept of the harmony between man and nature, the legacy of most of Wright's body of work.
The cantilevered-design is literally built over a waterfall, which explains the complicated construction process and the length it took to complete. When I think of Frank Lloyd Wright's work, this is often the example that comes to mind.
