Fallingwater: The Model e-book

I toured Falling Water in 1998, and I also found a quality FW tee shirt at the FLW Conservancy site. One person found this helpful. For a model to be in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and receive the praise of then curator Terrence Riley must mean that it was built to the highest standards. If LKP had read the book, this would have been self evident.

In Fallingwater: The Model, Bonfilio writes o Built in 1937 in Bear Run, Pennsylvania, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater is one of the great masterpieces of modern architecture. Thousands visit the house every year, and thousands more ponder its breathtaking lines and balance at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where its scale model is part of the permanent collection. In Fallingwater: The Model, Bonfilio writes of his relation to the house and particularly its model and his two years building it.

Its model, constructed by Paul Bonfilio in 1984, is a masterpiece of model making and a high point in the permanent .

Its model, constructed by Paul Bonfilio in 1984, is a masterpiece of model making and a high point in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Such were my thoughts until I started leafing through this absolutely fascinating little book by Paul Bonfilio, the Madame Tussaud of architectural model-makers, who has created miniature reproductions of architectural landmarks (among them Johnson's Glass House, Neutra's Lovell House, and Mies's Barcelona Pavilion) for the permanent collection of NYC's Museum of Modern Art.

Fallingwater: the Model, by Paul Bonfilio (ISBN 0-8478-2341-5) is a small book with many useful diagrams detailing and documenting the construction of a scale model, perhaps a useful guide in designing your own. If you could be satisfied with another Frank LLoyd Wright model, Dover prints. If you could be satisfied with another Frank LLoyd Wright model, Dover prints an HO scale model of the Robie House in Chicago. I already have one, but saw more on sale last week at the Wright Museum in Oak Park, Illinois. net has a model of Frank's "mile-high skyscraper" design.

Best Products Company Architecture Fund. Architecture and Design. Completed in 1937, Fallingwater was built as a private weekend retreat for the Pittsburgh department-store magnate Edgar J. Kaufmann in Mill Run, Pennsylvania. The bold design of the house, which seems to hover dramatically above a waterfall, was immediately hailed by critics as a masterpiece of modern architecture, catapulting Wright, its architect, into the limelight.

Fallingwater the model Bonfilio's loving chronicle of taking Fallingwater apart and putting it back together again, as it were, accomplishes something that dozens of other.

Fallingwater the model Bonfilio's loving chronicle of taking Fallingwater apart and putting it back together again, as it were, accomplishes something that dozens of other books on this iconic house fail to do: it gets us to look at the house and its complex topography, its every elevation and surface, corner, and detail-as well as the choices, inspired and imprudent, that Wright.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, in Bear Run, Pa., of 1935, is one of the great masterpieces of modern architecture. Its model, constructed by Paul Bonfilio in 1984 , is a masterpiece of model making and a high point in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In discussing how the model was built, the design of the famous house itself is also analyzed, throwing new light on many intricacies of its complex construction.

Very detailed book. I nearly booked a flight to New York to see it at the MOMA, but checked online and it's not currently on display. I toured Falling Water in 1998, and I also found a quality FW tee shirt at the FLW Conservancy site.

In the late '50s I had the unusual chance to personally ask FLW what school might be best to learn City Planning. Not knowing then that his inimitable, signature response would be "you can't learn that in a School, you have to learn by doing."
Later, I also had the pleasure of knowing Paul Bonfilio, and can attest that his own product here is a labor of love that reflects an intuitive, heartfelt resonance.
BTW, if you have the opportunity to personally visit Fallingwater, try to exactly time it to that week in May when the surrounding wooded Moutain Laurel canopy is in their full and profuse bloom for an added breathtakingly magical experience.

I'm really enthralled by the amazing job that modelers can do, and this book was an excellent journey through what it took to build a detailed model of an iconic American architectural gem. I especially liked it since it was both a look into the mind and methods of a skilled model builder and a glimpse of the details of the actual building.

It is unfortunate that the review by LKP is of a different model of Fallingwater and NOT the model by Paul Bonfilio. For a model to be in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and receive the praise of then curator Terrence Riley must mean that it was built to the highest standards. If LKP had read the book, this would have been self evident. When you search for photos of the Fallingwater model you will find that several versions have been built, but only one is in MOMA and only one has the most realistic and accurate rendition of this Architectural Masterpiece. Constructing this model was a two year effort certainly much longer and more exacting than the other versions that exist.

I was just browsing through the Amazon listings, to find more books on Fallingwater to add to my collection. When it comes to that iconic structure.....the more information, the better. I have to admit I was captivated by the concept that there was a book about "the model" of Fallingwater, and before I took the plunge and ordered the book, I decided to do a Google Image Search to see what the model looks like. As someone who has visited Fallingwater many times, I did a double take......I guess there is room for debate, but (to me) this model does NOT resemble the structure in the least. And the fact that it has become the subject of a book, plus has gotten the approval of MOMA.....I guess I simply don't understand how this benign little model surrounded by a few
timid tiny twigs has gotten such recognition. So, bear with me if this review has turned into a commentary on the Model itself, instead of the book. Harumph!
