    Fallingwater | Frank Lloyd Wright
    sandstone/reinforced concrete/steel/glass

    One of the most iconic designs by America’s legacy of architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater was designed in 1935 for the wealthy Kaufmann family. What makes this building so exemplary is Wright’s use of the the surrounding environment in the design and construction of the home: 
    -local rocks quarried from nearby and placed in a shifting manner, allowing them to look like a natural extension of the surrounding hills,

    - a generous amount of windows ensuring a continuance of the home into the landscape and vice versa, these windows also become quite reflective with the shifting light, much like the surface of the water surrounding it,
    - colored a soft ochre after the underside of the local rhododendron leaves, and
    -red painted steel to match the red color of iron ore

    Wright successfully designed Fallingwater as an extension of the river-edge it was situated on. He allowed the natural environment to continue into the home- even employing the use of semicircles to allow trees to continue their natural growth paths through the trellises- and allowed the home to compliment the shape and materials of it’s natural surroundings.

    If you’re in the northeast, consider taking a tour.
