Architecture of the Week – Fallingwater
The video above is a graphic rendering/tour of Fallingwater. Fallingwater, also known as the Edgar J. Kaufmann Sr. Residence, is a house designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1934 in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, 50 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The house was built partly over a waterfall in Bear Run at Rural Route 1 in the Mill Run section of Stewart Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, in the Laurel Highlands of the Allegheny Mountains.
Hailed by Time magazine shortly after its completion as Wright’s “most beautiful job”, it is also listed among Smithsonian magazine’s Life List of 28 places “to visit before …it’s too late.”
