Fallingwater was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935. Construction began a year later and was eventually completed in 1939. Many consider Fallingwater one of Wright’s finest creations. Hence why Smithsonian Magazine counted it as one of the 28 Places to See Before You Die. Now, thanks to the mini movie above, you can watch the building of Fallingwater take place right before your eyes, and then take a tour of the house. It’s all done in computer graphics and runs 4+ minutes. And, as one reader tells us, the “video is as real as it gets.” You can learn more about the film and the house at this web site. Thanks Mike for the great tip.
