fallingwater: interior

right called it a flat-chested architecture. It was basically of white rendered surfaces as for example, LeCorbusier’s Villa Savoir which I think Wright tried to one-up and brilliantly did so in the Fallingwater House at Bear Run. So whereas LeCorbusier’s building is a box, a cube, everything is contained, Wright’s is an explosion of form into space.—Robert A.M. Stern, Architect

“An architect has to be dependent on the client. Every client that comes down the pike is fabulous. There’s this wonderful story about Wright and clients...” —Robert A.M. Stern, Architect
