WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: ONE SHOT, TWO WAYS
Fallingwater is the name of a very special house that is built over a waterfall. Frank Lloyd Wright, America’s most famous architect, designed the house for his clients, the Kaufmann family. Fallingwater was built between 1936 and 1939. It instantly became famous, and today it is a National Historic Landmark.
Why is it so famous? It’s a house that doesn’t even appear to stand on solid ground, but instead stretches out over a 30’ waterfall. It captured everyone’s imagination when it was on the cover of Time magazine in 1938. Information taken from link here.
Montezuma Castle is one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America. This 20 room high-rise apartment, nestled into a towering limestone cliff, tells a story of ingenuity, survival and ultimately, prosperity in an unforgiving desert landscape.
ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER/FREEDOM TOWER – NYC SKYLINE
One World Trade Center, known also as New York’s Freedom Tower has now reclaimed the Manhattan skyline after more than twelve years of planning and construction. The steel superstructure has recently achieved its final height. Here are some images showing the proposed design and the construction progress. When completed, the official height with spire will be 541.3 meters (1,776 feet) with over 3.5 million square feet on 104 floors. Cost of construction is estimated to reach $3.8 billion. The finished building will be the tallest in the Western Hemisphere.
