Fallingwater by Lynda S Waggoner( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Built in 1936 by now legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright for clients Edgar and Liliane Kaufmann, Fallingwater is hailed internationally as a masterpiece of twentieth-century architecture. A marvel of innovation and architectural daring, the house appears as if a part of the landscape, an outcropping of the western Pennsylvania wilderness. It seems to float over the rushing falls of Bear Run, upon the banks of which it is miraculously sited, like an impossible vision, a dream. Perhaps the most famous house constructed for a private individual, Fallingwater has since been entrusted to the stewardship of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and is visited annually by more than 150,000 visitors. In recent years recognized by the American Institute of Architects as the best work of American architecture of all time, there's no doubt as to the ongoing relevance of this important work by an American architectural giant. This landmark volume, published in association with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, commemorates the 75th anniversary of the house and is a major event in the story of this icon, with brand-new texts by leaders in the field on Fallingwater's history, structure, restoration, and collections. Destined to become the volume on the subject of this seminal monument, the book is a tribute to genius and the long-awaited reconsideration of this masterwork of world architecture
