Wright's Fallingwater

The problem with portraying architecture in photos is that a 2D representation never fully captures the 3D experience of architecture. Video has a similar problem. Even 3D video never envelopes you the way architecture does. 

This computerized rendition of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece, Fallingwater, attempts to overcome those limitations by disecting and examing the building from every vantage point... even those vantage points impossible in real life. It's not like being there, but it comes close.
