Designed in 1935 by Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater or the Kaufmann Residence is one the famous architect’s most recognizable works.
Located in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, about 43 miles (69 km) southeast of Pittsburgh, Fallingwater is constructed over a waterfall on Bear Run river.
The house was designed as a weekend home for the family of Liliane Kaufmann and her husband, Edgar J. Kaufmann, owner of Kaufmann’s department store.
Time cited it after its completion as Wright’s “most beautiful job”; it is listed among Smithsonian’s Life List of 28 places “to visit before you die”.
It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966.
In 1991, members of the American Institute of Architects named the house the “best all-time work of American architecture” and in 2007, it was ranked 29th on the list of America’s Favorite Architecture according to the AIA.

It’s a Lonely Life on the Plains for May.

Come-by-Chance, Australia
May McKeown looks up at the stars as she stands in the front yard of her 6,000 acre property.
May, aged 78, lives and works on her property mostly alone as her son is constantly traveling.
She inspects the property and hand-feeds her cattle daily, writing poems in her spare time about her lonely life on the flat north-west plains.

The vertiginous glass walkways provide a dizzying affect and a possible feeling of vertigo and are becoming increasingly popular among thrill-seeking tourists.
