De tous les livres qui ont été édités sur cette maison, il s'agit du plus complet. Comportant de nombreuses photos en couleurs ou en noir et blanc, les passionnés d'architecture y trouveront aussi les plans et les coupes, ainsi que des explications quant à l'édification de ce défi constructif.
C'est dans tous les cas un livre à avoir dans sa bibliothèque.

Kudos - Exquisite New Visions of a World Treasture 11 mai 2011
Par Larry A. Woodin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In the introduction Ms. Waggoner raises the question of whether another book on Fallingwater would be useful, "hasn't it all been said; what is new; what more can be shown?" Clearly there was a great deal more to say, to learn and to see and in this book all of it is said gracefully and intelligently, elucidated clearly and illustrated beautifully. BRAVO! This is a work for study and contemplation. Spend time, meditate on the concepts, absorb - or enter into - the photographs and revel in more than you can ever gain from a single visit, or even many visits, to this compelling masterwork.

I have had the privilege of visiting Fallingwater many times, in all seasons, under many weather conditions and many times of day and night. What a gift to have a book that captures such a diverse range of perceptions through clear description, thoughtful interpretation and phenomenal photography. Each of the authors included in this volume has studied this World Treasure thoroughly over many years. We are privileged to share in the fruits of seven author's experience and wisdom. Each of them has written on a particular aspect of the building and its site, its contents, the history of the building and the life of the family for whom it was conceived and built by the genius architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Buy this book and revel with me as these authors provide new insights into the history of the building, the experience of the building in its magnificent setting and let your mind open as they suggest perceptions of the building (along with its furnishings, art and personal memorabilia of the family) that will make our understanding of this masterwork richer and more complete. Explore this book over time and then visit Fallingwater in person; for the first time or again and yet again. The experience is different each time and, to put it simply, being at Fallingwater is good for the soul. Allow each visit to deepen your appreciation of this unique work of Art in Nature.

Finally, I must comment specifically on the photography. Christopher Little's photographs capture this work in views that it would take us many many visits to accumulate and he provides perspectives and details not previously shown, (or at least not shown so beautifully) views that invite us to see more deeply! (eg. see fig. 19 - the aerial photograph used to illustrate Professor Levine's masterful essay "To Hear Fallingwater Is To See It In Time" and the wonderful photos of Fallingwater in fog.) By carefully selecting the `scope' of each photograph Little has achieved the seemingly impossible; he has suspended the experience of music one chord, or one phrase, at a time. The cumulative achievement is to allow the viewer to take one step at a time and to pause to explore the emotional depth that is Fallingwater.

Brilliant! Masterful! We are deeply indebted to Waggoner and each of her contributors for offering this remarkable achievement.

AWESOME!... 23 août 2000
Par Jack Dempsey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Fallingwater, in and of itself, is a name that commands awe and respect. This book epitomizes that notion.
Simply, this is it. This is the be all, end all of texts on this masterpiece by the late F.L.W.
I have been an admirer of F.L.W. since I was in the fifth grade, and had to do a report on earthquakes and buildings. Living in S.F., I guess this was a hot topic. But, in a showing (foreshadowing?) of extremely good taste---if I do say so myself, I chose F.L.W. and the TransAmerica building. For those of you out of the loop, that's the "pyramid" building you see when looking at (virtually every) snapshot(s) of the S.F. skyline. I hadn't yet discovered Fallingwater, but I would eventually be shown the way...
This is such an incredibly beautiful house. Honestly, I could not imagine the blessing of owning that house and living there. This text, however, sets it all out.
EXCELLENT photos, both inside and out....in different seasons as well.
VERY GOOD text and dialogue. Provides a great understanding of the dream, planning, undertaking, and completion of this masterpiece.
This is an incredibly text. I cannot urge you enough to purchase this one. In short, your collection is not complete without it.
Open this book, and dream....

Stunning - blows other Fallingwater books away! 10 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a classic coffe table book that will endure for decades. It is chock full of color photographs, drawings, layouts and stories from the owner's son. The author was a pupil of Frank Lloyd Wright, his father commissioned several works from the famous man. The book is not about FLW; it does not discuss his other work, or even his contribution to architecture. Yet, it does tell stories. Stories about the house, the building, the site, the construction, the arguements, the leaks, and the repairs. It is a story of archeciture that is organic - one that is growing; one that grows on you.
This is a category killer of a book. It knocks other Fallingwater books out of the ring. It is large and beautifully photgraphed. It is simply and honestly written. And well it does not tell of FLW, those facts are readily available elsewhere.
This is a treasure of a find. A real keeper. One that you can look at again and again

Fallingwater at 75; It Still Looks Like Tomorrow 15 mai 2011
Par Paul R Wick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book, celebrating Fallingwater's 75th anniversary, is a testament to how much Mr. Wright, and his masterpiece of organic architecture, still have to teach us.

The book begins with a "Director's Tour," by Lynda Waggoner, accompanied by Christopher Little's wonderful photographs. It's the next best thing to being there!

I've lived on the same road as Fallingwater, for many years; it's a feature of my neighborhood, so to speak. I've seen it in all seasons, over decades. It's never looked as fine as it does in these pages.

The book features seven illustrated essays by experts and Wright scholars, along with appendices and notes. Documents and personal correspondence from the Kaufmann family, which only recently entered the public domain, were among the treasures that fascinated me most about the new book. Whether you're a frequent visitor yearning for more, or someone just discovering the greatest example ever of a building in absolute harmony with nature, this book will not disappoint.

If you like Fallingwater, this is a buy. 25 mai 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I went to Fallingwater and saw the book in the gift shop. I compared it to all of the other books there before purchasing it. It you are an architecture person or a Frank Lincoln (Lloyd) Wright fan this is not a book for you. This book concentrates on the facets of Fallingwater from the point of view of the owners son (a FLW student). It shows some great pictures of the site before construction, the house during construction, and I would say the best set of published pictures of the home. It falls short in the textual details. Overall I would still purchase it if you like the home.
