I visited Fallingwater this morning.
Fallling water is the amazing home that Frank Lloyd Wright designed for the Kaufmann family in 1935 in rural Southernwestern Pennsylvania. As amazing as the home is (literally constructed over a falling stream), the most astounding part is that Wright designed his most renowned home when he was 70 years old. Most people thought Wright was retiring and yet after Fallingwater he went on to develop 200 more architectual marvels–including the Guggenheim Museum which he rendered after he was 90 years old!
I want to grow old like that . . .
