From the Paper:

"Frank Lloyd Wright's building known as "Fallingwater" is also known as the Kaufmann House, and it was built across Bear Run stream in Connellsville, Pennsylvania. A number of elements in this building are startling, with materials not commonly used for residential construction, in a style that sets the building apart. Wright used some of the same techniques in other buildings he created, such as cantilever construction, such as the Lovell House in Los Angeles. The cantilever construction of the building consists of projecting slabs that are balanced on piers below and stabilized by the vertical masonry planes from which they emerge. The material is tan finished concrete."
