Strategically placed above a waterfall, Fallingwater's horizontal cantilevered floors and terraces soar free of any apparent support. The building dynamically illustrates Frank Lloyd Wright's fascinating attitudes towards integrating architecture and nature and the truly extraordinary ways in which these are expressed.
Launched in 1991, the Architecture in Detail series attracted immediate acclaim and now comprises more than 60 titles. These books are highly collectable documents, each focusing in depth on a celebrated building. The series covers all sides of the vast spectrum of architecture from the past, present and future; the individual buildings are selected for their exceptional character, innovative design or technical virtuosity.
Each volume contains a definitive text by a respected author; a sequence of color and black-and-white photographs; a series of technical drawings; and a set of essential working details. These titles are vital to every architectural library, appealing to the professional and student alike, or indeed anyone with an appreciation of buildings.
