Day 52 – ‘My Name is Art Vandelay. I'm an Architect’
It’s setting in woodlands, back from the road, gives it a hidden, secluded feel and the conservation project has managed to build a pretty impressive visitors center without damaging the environment. Even this modern addition fits with Wright’s idea that Fallingwater should be built into the landscape, not on it… As it was a random Monday morning I had expected it to be just us on a lonely tour, but turns out October is their busiest month. I guess the fall colors really bring out the architect nuts!
