Oct 12, 2018Fallingwater — Not the usual angle

Not the usual angle. Fallingwater. Bear Run, Fayette County, Pennsylvania.

Peeking through the trees, here’s a tantalizing view of the terrace layout. What I’ve found amusing in all my reading about Fallingwater, is the ways in which the authors skirt around and allude to what was obviously a fundamental requirement of the Kaufmanns; privacy for nude sunbathing. Even from up on this slope, while the ‘public’ terrace is overlooked, the Kaufmann’s small private terraces are screened.

Not the usual angle. Fallingwater. Bear Run, Fayette County, Pennsylvania.
