Fallingwater has always been my preferred work from one of my favourite architects: Frank Lloyd Wright. I remember seeing and admiring this building in some history book from school since I was a child. There was a photo of its outside with that characteristic point of view: the fall in the foreground and the deep forest surrounding the house. At 13 or 14 years old it seemed to me a very modern construction, almost futuristic; later it surprised me to find out that it dates from the Thirties of the Twenty Century.

With this animation project I have tried to understand —and to explain at the same time— how this house was built, showing its internal structure and offering points of view not so well-known or disclosed. I hope you enjoy it.

La Casa de la Cascada ha sido desde siempre mi obra preferida de uno de mis arquitectos favoritos: Frank Lloyd Wright. Recuerdo haber admirado ya de muy pequeño —en algún libro de historia del colegio— una foto de su exterior con ese característico punto de vista: la cascada en primer plano y el bosque frondoso rodeando a la casa. Con 13 ó 14 años me parecía una construcción muy moderna, casi futurista; después me sorprendió averiguar que data de los años treinta del siglo XX.

Con este proyecto de animación he tratado de comprender, y a su vez explicar, cómo fue construida esta casa, mostrando su estructura interna y ofreciendo unos puntos de vista no tan conocidos o divulgados. Espero que os guste.
