Fallingwater: Art in Nature

Show Info

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of Fallingwater, Luftwerk created this large-scale video and sound installation. This highly regarded house is one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s greatest works. The structural dynamism and relationship with the natural surroundings defines this masterpiece. Illuminating the structure of the architecture with a vibrant visual composition, Luftwerk developed a design inspired by Wright’s principles of organic architecture. Images of the waterfall and surrounding flora along with motion graphics and manipulated imagery created a dialogue between the natural and manmade. Illuminating the house highlighted the home, literally and metaphorically; the glowing forms honored the architectural composition in a celebration for today.
