FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT
The extent of Wright's genius in
integrating every detail of this design
can only be hinted at in photographs.
This organically designed private
residence was intended to be a
nature retreat for its owners. The
house is well-known for its
connection to the site: it is built on top
of an active waterfall which flows
beneath the house.

|Fallingwater stands as one of Wright's greatest masterpieces both for its dynamism and for its integration
with the striking natural surroundings. Wright's passion for Japanese architecture was strongly reflected in
the design of Fallingwater, particularly in the importance of interpenetrating exterior and interior spaces
and the strong emphasis placed on harmony between man and nature. Tadao Ando once stated: "I think
Wright learned the most important aspect of architecture, the treatment of space, from Japanese
architecture. When I visited Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, I found that same sensibility of space. But there
was the additional sounds of nature that appealed to me."
On the hillside above the main house is a four-car carport (though
the Kaufmanns had requested a garage), servants' quarters, and a
guest bedroom. This attached outbuilding was built one year later
using the same quality of materials and attention to detail as the
main house. Just uphill from it is a small 6-foot-deep swimming
pool, continually fed by natural water, which then overflows to the
Through a visual trick comparing the swimming pool walls with the
landscape beyond, the swimming pool appears not to be level; it is,
in fact, level. The carport was, at the direction of Kaufmann, Jr.,
eventually enclosed for use by Fallingwater visitors, who generally
gather there at the end of guided tours. Kaufmann, Jr. designed the
interiors himself, but to specifications found in other Fallingwater
interiors designed by Wright.

The fireplace hearth in the living room is composed of boulders
found on the site and upon which the house was built — one set of
boulders which was left in place protrudes slightly through the living
room floor. Wright had initially intended that these boulders would be
cut flush with the floor, but this had been one of the Kaufmann
family's favorite sunning spots, so Mr. Kaufmann insisted that it be
left as it was. The stone floors are waxed, while the hearth is left
plain, giving the impression of dry rocks protruding from a stream.
Integration with the setting extends even to small details. For
example, where glass meets stone walls, there is no metal frame;
rather, the glass is caulked directly to the stone. There are stairways
directly down to the water. And in the "bridge" that connects the main
house to the guest and servant building, a natural boulder drips
water inside, which is then directed back out. Bedrooms are small,
some even with low ceilings, perhaps to encourage people outward
toward the open social areas, decks, and outdoors.
The active stream (which can be heard constantly throughout the
house), immediate surroundings, and locally quarried stone walls
and cantilevered terraces (resembling the nearby rock formations)
are meant to be in harmony, in line with Wright's interest in making
buildings that were more "organic" and which thus seemed to be
more engaged with their surroundings.
Although the waterfall can be heard throughout the house, it can't be
seen without going outside. The design incorporates broad
expanses of windows and the balconies are off main rooms giving a
sense of the closeness of the surroundings. The experiential climax
of visiting the house is an interior staircase leading down from the
living room allowing direct access to the rushing stream beneath the
Driveway leading to the entrance of Fallingwater.
Wright's views of what would be the entry have been argued about;
still, the door Wright considered the main door is tucked away in a
corner and is rather small. Wright's idea of the grand facade for this
house is from the perspective of all the famous pictures of the house,
looking up from downstream, viewing the opposite corner from the
