The research topic refers to Fallingwater House which was designed by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright in Bear Run stream, Pennsylvania in 1936, on behalf of the Kauffmann family. Biographical elements of the architect are presented; his apprenticeships along with his first pieces of work, from those which constitute the precursor of Prairie Style and Usonian Houses to the more important influences that he had until the time he was assigned the designing of Fallingwater, are commented upon. The most important factors which influenced his residence design included Sullivan, as his professor; his travels to Japan; his connection to the Japanese art and architecture; Organic Architecture and movements such as Russian Constructivism and Suprematism. Obviously influenced from Neutra, as an architect, and Malevich, as an artist, he ends up with the completed concept of the building.
Architectural designs, drawings and photographs from constructional details and innovations of the building, are attached. At the same time, though, constructional errors and pointless details which still strain its structure, are commented on. This is the reason why the maintenance service of Pennsylvania puts Fallingwater into its top priorities. The Kauffmann family used the house as its rural residence up until the 1950’s, when the son of the family, Edgar Kauffmann Jr., donated the building to the Museum of Modern Art of New York, aiming to having it publically exposed.
The presentation is enriched with photographs. It is accompanied by a short video where the constructional phases of the building clearly appear, and by a model which allows us the ability to disassemble the levels of Fallingwater House.
