Fallingwater: Driveway trellis, reverse angle (from west).
The driveway trellis connects the back of the house to the hillside. At the very top of the photo, part of the walkway is visible that leads from the second floor up the hill to the guest house. For a better view, see the driveway trellis from the opposite end or the view from the same angle but further back showing the cantilever anchors and back of the house.
      This corner is opposite to corner nearest the camera in the famous view from downstream.

Wright created long, drawn-out lines and planes to achieve repose among daring structural exploits, and his use of trellises over the eastern terrace and driveway balances the three-story glass wall on the west.
