Animated View of Fallingwater

Frank Lloyd Wright was the greatest American architect of the first half of the 20th century and one of the greatest architects who has ever lived. At a time when people were designing and building the typical residential houses we still see in cities today, Frank Lloyd Wright was designing amazing structures that still somehow seems futuristic today.

Wright designed a home called Fallingwater on Bear Run in Pennsylvania in the 1930' and it still looks like it is a futuristic home today.

Click on the heading above to see an amazing animation simulating the construction of Fallingwater. It is a wonderful opportunity to study the innate structural genius of Frank Lloyd Wright. This is a valuable resource to help students try to assimilate Wright's design genius.
