An Animated Tour of Fallingwater, One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Finest Creations

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.

For more Frank Lloyd Wright, you’ll also want to visit the R.W. Lindholm Service Station, a gas station designed by the famous architect in the 1930s. We’ll take you on a virtual tour right here.

    Is there any way to slow this down to half speed? Far too much to take in at the speed it’s being played at.
    As to the ‘house’ itself; it’s not a house, it’s a castle! What an imagination he had to be able to design such a building in such an unusual position and make best use of the natural features existing there.

    Wonderful film but far too fast. It’s supposed to be a place of great beauty, in harmony with its surroundings. We need to take it in slowly.
