House of Cards: Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright.
One of my college classes was a two dimensional design class. Our last project was to make 9 “cards” in two dimensions and then assemble them into a three dimensional project.

I used leftover, or salvaged 1” flooring that was in my grandparents house when it was built in 1944/45. I created 5×7 frames and one 7×7 frame with simple mitered corners tacked in place with a finishing nail. Lots of pilot holes so not to split the flooring. I will admit my species identification is weak, but I think it is oak, but don’t quote me on that.

The images were printed on transparency film on my inkjet and double sided taped to the frames.

Not a scale or perfect replica, but I like it!

Very interesting… I can see the FLW influence.

A very interesting and artistic concept.

I like your interpretation here!

What will become of this piece?

That has NOTHING to do with Falling Water or Frank Lloyd Wright!

Thanks iSawitFirst…it is an artists interpretation, an impression of one of Mr. Wright’s buildings.
