Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water is 75
Fantastic feature on Falling Water on the AIA website HERE
With a great Interactive Graphic showing the problems that have had to be overcome to stop it falling in to the river, including the fact that it dropped 1 3/4" as soon as the cantilevered terraces construction supports were removed!!
And a slideshow of new photos
It's amazing that it is still standing and fantastic that it has been preserved. I must get over to see it some time.
