“The space within becomes the reality of the building.” Fallingwater House (Located in Bear Run, Pennsylvania) in Winter
Anybody who knows dick about architecture knows that Frank Lloyd Wright was a mysterious genius. The Guggenheim museum here in NYC (which Wright designed) currently has an amazing retrospective of his projects – both built and unrealized – including plans, drawings, schematics, models and photographs of structures that would just crack your skull wide open with their awesomeness. Geoffrey and I saw the Guggenheim show a few weeks ago and I am still having dreams about his houses. I mean, have you ever seen pictures of the Fallingwater House? Can you even believe something like that exists? Talk about an artist who was light years ahead of his time.
The Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit runs through August 23rd, 2009 at the Guggenheim Museum, located uptown at 89th and Fifth Avenue, across from Central Park.
