Fallingwater
Mill Run, Pennsylvania

Frank Lloyd Wright--the architect who designed this house in 1936--is a name known throughout the world. In planning Fallingwater, he tried to build a home that would seem like part of its natural surroundings. The house is built above a waterfall, with wing-like balconies that almost seem to float in space over the stream below. Fallingwater has been called the most famous modern house in the world.
