This is kind of creepy. Just last night I was watching Ken Burns’ excellent Frank Lloyd Wright documentary again and got to thinking that it would be cool if someone were to make a virtual version of the Kaufmann House since I’ve yet to have a chance to visit it in person. Lo and behold this morning I wake up to find a post in my RSS reader that someone has done exactly that using the Half-Life 2 Source engine.
Designed by architecture student ‘Kasperg’ the Fallingwater map is based on layouts, floorplans and over 250 interior and exterior photos of the house. If you don’t have Half-Life 2 installed the video we’ve included after the jump gives a good idea of the level of detail put into this map and if you do have HL2 installed make sure to download the actual map from the link provided.
