Falling­wa­ter by Frank Lloyd Wright

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Amazing Architecture -

A tum­ble of tiers hang­ing over a creek makes this house look as if it was de­signed with Jenga. The mae­stro’s ‘most beau­ti­ful job’ (as cited by Time mag­a­zine on its com­ple­tion), and a glo­ri­ous ex­am­ple of his trade­mark or­ganic ar­chi­tec­ture, was de­signed for depart­ment store mogul Edgar J Kauf­mann and is renowned for its can­tilevers over the Bear Run wa­ter­way. A mu­seum since 1964 and a Na­tional His­toric Land­mark, it re­mains one of Wright’s mas­ter­pieces, merg­ing home and land­scape in a stun­ning piece of built theatre. falling­wa­ter.org
