Design of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Masterpiece

Posted to Data Art  |  Nathan Yau

In 1934, American architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed Fallingwater, a house built partly over a waterfall. A couple of years ago, Smithsonian Magazine listed Fallingwater as one of the 28 places to visit before you die. Cristobal Vila, who himself has a knack for pretty things, animates the imaginary design and construction of Wright's famous building.

Watch it unfold in the animated video below. Warning: after watching, you will have a very strong urge to visit.
