This seminal volume, now back in print in a new format and at a reduced price, offers a deeply immersive tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most legendary building.

With stunning photography commissioned especially for the book, Fallingwater captures the much-loved masterpiece by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The book includes authoritative texts on Fallingwater’s history, structure, restoration, and collections, including the house’s relationship to its setting and its importance to the sustainability movement; its meaning in the context of Wright’s body of work; the analysis and planning process that went into Fallingwater’s restoration and how a seemingly unsolvable problem was overcome through modern engineering. The book is a tribute to the genius behind this masterwork.
