Can’t get to Fallingwater? Experience it in 3D

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, in Mill Run in Fayette County.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater is arguably only one of the most incredible architectural achievements of all time.

And Western Pennsylvania is home to it. Bravo, for us.

There’s no substitute for visiting the iconic site, built in 1935 for the Kaufmann family. And if you haven’t been there — we wonder if you can really count yourself as a true Western Pennsylvanian resident.

But sometimes you can’t always make the road trip to Mill Run in Fayette County. But on those rainy or snowy days, there’s always 3D computer graphics, right?

Enter Cristóbal Vila and his 3D-computer-rendered fly-over showing the environment, structure, and design of the masterpiece.

It’s the next best thing to being there.

If you want to know more about Vila’s video and how he did it, check out his website.

While the video makes you feel like you are really there, we strongly urge you to go for real.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
