Edgar Kaufmann Residence - Fallingwater- was completed in 1939. Jutting over the rich flow of a mountain stream deep in the West Pennsylvanian forest, this house embodies the quintessence of Wright's architectural concept. Familiar techniques since the times of 'Prairie Houses' such as harmony with nature, open plan emphasizing on horizontality, continuity between indoor and outdoor, or walls opened by means of windows, but also the idea behind the structure/construction method of supporting 1/3 of the building with cantilevers are akin to the modernity in 'Usonian Houses'. Such maturity of quality makes this house a magnum opus among Wright's works, one of the best in all modern architecture.
