Falling Water was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. In 1991,  American Institute of Architects named the house the "best all-time work of American architecture" and in 2007, it was twenty-ninth on the list of America's Favorite Architecture according to the AIA.   Here is an approximate model in the virtual world of Kitely, a model you can walk into and explore.

The iconic approach
