.frank lloyd wright's falling water.

while at washington & jefferson for the lil bro's matriculation to college pop and i managed to sneak off to frank lloyd wright's falling water house for a few hours.  i've seen pictures and read countless things about this iconic house but to see it in person is truly breathtaking.
a testament to wright's desire to work with nature instead of through it, not a single detail was overlooked in it's design and construction.  the way the house is perched atop the waterfall allowing the stream to flow as it would untouched achieves the exact effect he desired.  water not only runs under the house but through it as there are several places inside that allow water to enter and leave elegantly through grates and channels.
it's definitely a place that i need to visit many more times to begin to fully comprehend however this first glimpse has been incredibly rewarding.  a true work of art that has stood the test of time.
