View 2 through the forest from the lookout above the stream (Bear Run), from southwest. Frank Lloyd Wright planned the house with this view in mind.
The stream flows roughly parallel to (and partially under) the house, but breaks at an angle at the falls. The sound of the flowing water fills the house continually. The cantilevered levels symbolically resonate with the rock ledges below. The supports that are (barely) visible under the terrace are a temporary measure while repairs are made.
