Fallingwater House is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous creations. He built it for the Kaufman family in the 1930s. One of the things that makes the building so unique is how the building design integrates into the natural landscape. There are many options to build a model. Architectural companies build scale models from wood and plaster. With the plans provided from the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, a skilled craftsman can make a 1-foot to 1-inch scale model. LEGO also offers a kit to make a version of the iconic building. But you can make the easiest model out of paper.
