    That's great — it's really well done. I can't even imagine how long it would take to do that kind of detail. Has anyone ever been to the real house? I'd be interested to know how accurate it is.

    That is arguably one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

    I've been there once. It's actually quite an accurate recreation!

    It looks almost spot on I'd say. Very cool find.

    Hey!! I was born in Kalamazoo, MI. Live in Burlington, VT now. Most people don't believe me when I say I was born there, they don't think it is a real place.

    My family has always been a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, I know we have several books around the house of his work.

    FLW started out in Oak Park, IL (I just moved from there) and is considered America's greatest architect. Luckily, my new town of Riverside has several FLW homes.

    Thanks for this — good to know. I'd love to visit it one day.


    He may be from the Chicago area, but he's one of the most famous early 20th century architects in the world. Which I would have thought had filtered through to Diggle by now. ;)

    Edit: Especially to a "design n stuff" student! :D

    Falling Water is my favorite FLW design. Unfortunately, I don't think this is a playable level in that you can't have more than one person in it (from what I read a while back on this map).

    Jimmi, GFL, and others, Wright also designed the Guggenheim Museum in NYC. (The spiraly white one). It's probably more recognizable than his houses to someone who doesn't know his work.

    I haven't been to New York :p

    all the architecture stuff I see round here was developed hundreds of years ago. never something we studied at college or university I'm afraid.

    Me neither, but it's a more well-known building of his that I thought you might know. :)

    That was amazing! It looks pretty close to what the actual property looks like too! And yes, some of the doorway's there are really that narrow.
