Frank Lloyd Wright designed a masterpiece home named Fallingwater. This is an American architectural gem. This amazing home sits in Mill Run, Pennsylvania in the Laurel Highlands region.

Frank Lloyd Wright founded the theory of “Organic Architecture.” This means that he designed buildings to blend with nature. In fact, the name Fallingwater stems from the home’s most famous feature.

Indeed, the property features an amazing set of waterfalls. Rather that build the home around the waterfalls, Wright designed the home to straddle the waterfall. Therefore, the falls became a unique feature of the home.

Indeed, these pictures will surprise you!

The waterfalls flow under Fallingwater. Visitors describe the sound as musical. Indeed, that’s what Wright intended! In fact, Fallingwater seems to rise from the river.

The original owners hired Wright to build their home. They frequently visited the mountains to escape the smog in Pittsburgh. Of course, they envisioned a view of the waterfalls. Imagine their surprise when Wright presented this floorplan.
