a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!

Frank Lloyd Wright
June 8

Born on this day in 1867, architect Frank Lloyd Wright is perhaps best known for magnificent residences such as his 1936 creation, Fallingwater. Designed for J. Edgar Kaufman at Bear Run, Pennsylvania, the house is a bold composition of cantilevered forms suspended above the natural beauty of a rugged rock outcropping and waterfall. The house is a powerful expression of the architect's vision... the weaving of building and landscape into an integral whole.
