Frank Lloyd Wright's "most beautiful job" - Fallingwater is a house built over a waterfall. What is soimpressive about the project is that it streches out over 30 waterfalls.

In a shop you are a customer, on a train you are a passenger, in a hospital you are a patient, in a class you are a student, in the economy at large youd be a consumer. But client? The only people who have clients are lawyers, architects and prostitutes, all of whom have to live with the reputation that they are simply out to screw you. Only the prostitute is honest about it..."
