Falling Water

A House like No Other

Falling Water is a unique house designed by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright and located in rural southwestern Pennsylvania.

The house was initially built for the Kaufmann family. They wanted to be able to entertain large groups of people, however the plot was not large enough for what they wanted. To get round this problem, Frank Lloyd Wright came up with a unique design of cantilevering the house over the stream of Bear Run.

This novel design gives two bonus features:

  • The building can host large groups of visitors.
  • The building is situated over the waterfall, adding effect and integrating with the surrounding landscape.
