Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 517 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
Fallingwater : Frank Lloyd Wright's romance with nature by Lynda S Waggoner ( Book )
10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fallingwater - Wright's masterwork - is considered his sublime integration of building and nature. Deep in the lush Pennsylvania forest, Fallingwater rises as a testament to Wright's genius. Nowhere else is his architecture felt so warmly or appreciated so intuitively. Wright's deep understanding of nature and of man's place in nature is presented through this architectural icon. An abundance of beautiful photographs of Fallingwater, elegantly framed by its dramatic natural setting, illuminates the naturally inspired features of Wright's masterpiece. Wright authority Lynda S. Waggoner's introduction - along with excerpts from Wright's observations of nature and quotes from philosophers such as Emerson and Thoreau, who profoundly influenced Wright's thinking - reveals how this legendary twentieth-century architect made the natural world a central element in his revolutionary approach to architecture
