Bear Run, Pennsylvania 1935, Frank Lloyd Wright

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright when his career was at a low, Fallingwater is an architectural tour de force. Strategically placed above a rushing waterfall, the house’s cantilevered floors and terraces soar free of any apparent support. The project illustrates dynamically Wright’s attitude towards integrating architecture and nature and the truly extraordinary ways in which this relationship is expressed.

‘The Architecture in Detail series is without question one of the most beautifully illustrated and well-documented collections of monographs on individual buildings produced anywhere in the world.’
