Kaufmann Residence 'Fallingwater'
  
 Ohiopyle, Bear Run-Mill Run, Pennsylvania



 In this poem of air, water and fire, Frank Lloyd Wright in 1934,38,48, construction system is reinforced concrete, stone-rural of Expressionist Modern style. Edgar J. Kaufman residence, cantilevers dramatically over rock outcropping and rushing stream. Sends out free-floating platforms audaciously over a small waterfall and anchors them in the natural rock. Something of the prairie house is here still; and we might also detect a grudging recognition of the I
nternational Style in the interlocking geometry of the planes and the flat, textureless surface of the main shelves. But the house is thoroughly fused with its site and, inside, the rough stone walls and the flagged floors are of an elemental ruggedness. Now Museum.
