Frank Lloyd Wright was once asked if he went to church.  He responded that his church was Nature with a capital N.

Wright's deep understanding of nature and man's place in nature is presented through this architectural icon. An abundance of beautiful photographs of Fallingwater, elegantly framed by its dramatic natural setting, illuminates the naturally inspired features of Wright's masterpiece.  Wright authority Lynda S.
