Amerikaanse dromen Frank Lloyd Wright en Nederland
The inside cover of the January 17,1938 Life magazine featured a photograph of the recently completed Kaufmann weekend house,'Fallingwater,' designed by America's best known architect, the then 70-year-old Frank Lloyd Wright: The house is shown emerging from thick woods, hovering above flowing water.The view is not from the approach to the house or from within, but from the outside, downstream, a vantage point that renders the conceptual idea of the house in its entirety: the magic of immense heaviness levitating; the Biblical metaphor of water from rock; an exclusive retreat alone in acres of wooded paradise.
