Overview
A landmark volume to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of arguably the most significant private residence of the twentieth century. With stunning new photography commissioned especially for this book, Fallingwater captures the much-loved masterpiece by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright following its recent restoration. Built in 1936 for Edgar and Liliane Kaufmann, Fallingwater is hailed as a twentieth-century masterpiece--a marvel of innovation and daring that appears to float over rushing falls. This volume is a major event in the story of this icon, with new authoritative texts on Fallingwater's history, structure, restoration, and collections, including the house's relationship to its setting and its importance to the sustainability movement; its meaning in the context of Wright's body of work; the analysis and planning process that went into Fallingwater's restoration and how a seemingly unsolvable problem was overcome through modern engineering. Destined to become the lasting volume on this seminal monument, the book is a tribute to genius and the long-awaited reconsideration of this masterwork.
