Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Happy 75th, Fallingwater
The iconic view of the house can be had with just a short walk through the woods to an outcropping. In what can rarely be said about buildings, this house makes Mother Nature all the better for being there. It truly is the high point in Frank Lloyd Wright's quest for an "organic architecture."
Becky Harris added this to 5 Homes That Won't Box You In
Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous private residential design is an organic masterpiece that was site driven. The way Fallingwater merges into its surroundings set a precedent, especially the way it hovers over a stream and a waterfall.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to If Legendary Composers Designed Homes
As with Copeland, Madison Avenue has done much to turn the works of George Gershwin into clichés. But no matter, these works embody what would become known as the American century. In what can only be described as symptomatic of so much of America, Gershwin so admired the French composers that he asked to study under them. Surely he was able to beat the French at their own game but didn't, unlike Frank Lloyd Wright, know it.
1930s. This decade would have to be characterized as lost to the Great Depression. With massive unemployment and an almost complete collapse of the building industry, it's a wonder any houses were built, especially one that has to be one of the most beautiful ever. So the colors of this decade were forest greens, soft browns and yellows as well as Frank Lloyd Wright's favorite, Cherokee Red. See more of the colors of Fallingwater.
Dorman Architects added this to What's Next for Our Homes' Exterior Design?
Dream: Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, by Frank Lloyd Wright (1937). Most people are stimulated by the prospect of living in or even building their dream home. Architects are stimulated by the exciting challenges of realizing those dreams. More about this iconic houseNext: Interesting solutions by contemporary architects working from the high-desert regions in Idaho to tight urban sites in Tokyo, to the leafy suburbs of Utrecht, and many places in between.

I am a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright. Falling Water is a beautiful example of working with nature rather than against it. I love the asymmetry, the clean lines, and layers of texture used in most of FLW's work. I also love his drive and determination to use materials and objects in new and surprising ways, appreciating the artistic nature of design.
