Fallingwater House




The Fallingwater House by Frank Lloyd Wright has been a building that stands out in my mind for years. I have never had the privilege of going, but the house has always stuck out in my mind. I am typically drawn to right angled or perpendicular buildings because it seems more effective, dependable, and simple. I am a simple person and I have always viewed the Fallingwater house as “simple” even though it is actually very complex. The Fallingwater house makes me think about my appreciation of nature and the modern era’s ability to cohabitate with nature. It also expresses to me the connection of modern and simple. I often get caught up thinking that if its new and cutting edge and modern, then it is probably complicated or it would have been done before. This house shows me that modern and simplicity are not mutually exclusive terms.
