The Frank Lloyd Wright designed Fallingwater, the 1934 modernist home owned by the late Edgar J. Kaufmann Sr., located in Pennsylvania, is now the subject of the latest LEGO@ set. Architect Adam Reed Tucker designed the 811-piece model. The actual Fallingwater has been open to the public since 1963. For more information, visit their website here.
