Frank Lloyd Wright's Masterpiece
Frank Lloyd Wright designed Fallingwater in 1936 as a private residence. It focuses on the concept of man and nature living together in harmony. It utilizes materials such as concrete, steel, glass, and local sandstone to give it a rock-like, sleek appearance. This structure is located above a waterfall, giving the impression that it is one with nature. I enjoy the way that Wright combined modern structure with organic ideas. The use of earth tones and natural materials in addition to industrial components creates a compelling and unique piece of architecture.
