From the Manufacturer
Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1934, Fallingwater is perhaps the most famous residential home in the world. Open to the public since 1963, this masterpiece exemplifies Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architectural style by intimately merging man with the surrounding landscape. This highly-detailed LEGO model, co-developed and designed by architect Adam Reed Tucker, captures all of the distinctive features that make Fallingwater an architectural landmark. The assembled Fallingwater model stands 10" (256 mm) wide on a gray base with printed name label and includes a booklet with facts about the building, its construction and its history.

When constructed, the structure isn't big: the base measures 10" x 5" and its 4.5" high, but its quite complex (more complex than the sets I remember as a kid) and feels substantial when completed. There are well over 800 pieces and approximately 100 pages of instructions. The instruction book also includes a few short essays on Frank Lloyd Wright and Fallingwater. The assembly instructions are well done and putting it together took several hours but no confusion.
You can't tell by looking at it, but the structure is actually designed to come apart: the house is in several pieces that stack on top of each other and then slide into the base; this ability to do a blow-up diagram lets you examine some of the forms that were used in the structure. Of course, you can't expect this set to be a very precise reproduction of the actual landmark, but it definitely captures its essence.
The set uses only a handful of colors that seem inspired by the colors Wright would use in some of his sketches --it gives the completed piece a very mature look. Once it was done I placed it on a shelf next to various books on architecture and modern sculptures. This is a very substantial piece when fully constructed, and if it got your attention like it did mine, I think you'll be satisfied with it.
It took me about 5 or so hours to finish the set with some minor interruptions. I thoroughly enjoyed building this and seeing each floor come to life. I agree the price was a bit steep - I think $75 would have been a fair price. But I really got some great satisfaction once I completed the model and may pull the trigger on the Farnsworth House (it has tiny furniture! & a kitchen!) regardless of the price.
Would highly recommend for an architecture enthusiast OR just someone who enjoys interesting and unique puzzles.
The spiral-bound build instructions are very nice, and include some good historic information regarding Falling Water. The value of the set at full-price is a bit questionable, as most of the parts are small bricks and plates, and the whole build fits onto a 16x32 baseplate. However, if you can get it on sale, and you are a fan of this lego series and/or FLW, this is a must-buy set!
He tends to take his models apart after they have been duly admired and then he makes other things from the pieces. So perhaps he is going to be an engineer or an architect!
