I have always had a soft spot for architecture. I mean, who hasn’t seriously considered becoming an architect after reading Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead?
And as cliché as it sounds, Frank Lloyd Wright has always been my favorite architect and Fallingwater my favorite residential building.
Visiting Fallingwater has been on my to-do list for over a decade. Unfortunately, the 6+ hour drive to western Pennsylvania is too daunting for this lazy geek. Perhaps we can make a weekend trip of it years down the road, with kids screaming in the back seat, “Are we there yet?!!”
For now, I can almost feel like I’m there…AND see how it was constructed in this beautiful animation by Cristobal Vila.
P.S. — How could I end this post without once mentioning LEGO® Fallingwater?
