The Falling Water - A house that straddles a waterfall.

Built for Pittsburg department store owner, Edgar J Kaufmann, whose son, Edgar Jr. was a Taliesin fellow, Falling water is dubbed as the most famous modern house in the world. A bold originator and worshipper of simplicity, Wright realized the powerful sounds of the falls, the vitality of the young forest, the dramatic rock ledges and boulders were the elements to be interwoven with serenely soaring spaces of his structures.
