I apologize for my inconsiderate countrymen, but it is understandable that they might react so because so many inquiries on this board/forum represent questions that could have been answered by simple research on-line. Yes, research is time consuming, but we all need to do it, and they did at some point.

Yes, FALLINGWATER, a house outside of Bear Run in our state of Pennsylvania is indeed still standing, and is now owned by a preservation trust under the laws of that state (our Federal government cannot dictate re buildings it does not own, unless the owner of such might accept funds from it). Fallingwater has just undergone a refurbishment that is an engineering challenge to this engineering marvel. FLW stretched the limits of the materials he had at the time and subsequent repairs have been needed. Still, it is one of the most remarkable homes ever designed (though I'm not sure that I would like to live right above the sound of so much rushing water all day long!), and there are several books on just that project apart from the dozens on his other works. If you go to www.Amazon.com and type in his name, there will no doubt be many dozens if not hundreds of books you can buy. You can't afford to buy such books? Then note at each book page of interest to you, the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) and copy and submit it to your school or public library and they will be able to have the book sent to you for little or no charge. Best Wishes.
