[Fallingwater third floor stair, with books]
Third floor stair with bookshelves.
These stairs descend from the third floor gallery to the second floor landing next to the bridge across the driveway to the covered walk leading up to the guest house. (This second floor landing is just around the corner from the landing at the top of the steps leading up from the dining area.) Books on the left wall are on shelves made of the same wood as that used elsewhere in the house, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright upon request. They are not fully cantilevered, having vertical support boards as well.
      Light pours in from the third floor terrace to the gallery area, spilling over the low wall just visible on the right, but much better seen on the left in the gallery photo.
