Artist: FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT
This work of architecture was a part of the new movements in the architectural movements. This building has become an icon of modern architecture and its incorporation of man made naturalistic architecture into a nature surrounding. Unlike earlier buildings in a nature setting where the building would be placed next to a waterfall or important landmark, the building was placed right on the waterfall, making it an important part of the building. The architect of the building believed the patrons of the house would become desensitized to the presence of the waterfall if it was not an important part of the house. The house is built using naturalistic masonry and overextending roofs and a odd layout of the building that was intended to be a more fluid interplay between the outside world around the house, and the house itself.
