The exciting thing about beign a first year is field trip! For a first hand look at two wonderfully designed homes we traveled to Monticello designed by Thomas Jefferson and Falling Water designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Out of the two i would have to say although I love the history tied to Thomas Jefferson's home, I was blown away by the design of Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water.
Stairs off the front of the house leading to the waterfall? I think it would be a nice area to sit and dip your feet in the water and enjoy.
This is the canopy connected the main house with the visitor house. It mimics the stairs below and was designed to look as if it were flowing and floating just like water.
This is the enterance to falling water which was made from rock just as the floor of the house and much of the house. This enterance is less traditional than Monticello's enterance. It is also more geometric.
It is interesting how the house is designed to look as if it is 2 stories when it is actually 3
The view from Monticello. (Much different than the Falling Water view)
This is the enterance if Monticello.
