"This was such a stunning building, a tour de force, that it re-establishes him. He appears on the cover of Time magazine in 1938. This man who is thought to be dead by some, with Fallingwater in the background, and it just captured the imagination of the world. It's a, it's as you can see an incredible building that marries architecture and nature."

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Justin W. Gunther, Director of Fallingwater:
"Here at Fallingwater everything is so intensified because it's not just about what you're seeing, but it's about what you're feeling. The moisture touches the back of your neck. The sound of the water permeates the space. You're seeing all of the beautiful design but also nature outside and all of that comes together and just magnifies the power and importance of this space."

"So World Heritage inscription will only help us even further preserve this place. Fallingwater's reaching close to eighty five years old, it will soon be a century old. The complexities of caring for it will only get more extreme.

9. SOUNDBITE (English) John Lobell, Pratt Institute School of Architecture Professor:
"Wright said, a great architect must be an interpreter of his time, his day, his age. So why was Wright's time, day, age? The architectural historian Sibyl Moholy-Nagy said Frank Lloyd Wright was the first architect who had to take on an entire continent singlehandedly. But she was too modest. Wright set himself two goals: to define or even create the 20th century and to redefine what we are as human beings."

"Well I think the Guggenheim is very honored that we're in the company of these august structures from around the world and also natural sites, which we admire as well, particularly the ones the United States. Most encouraging is that people now recognize the value of modern architecture and the worthiness of its preservation and I think we can extrapolate from that big long term values for treating civilization in new ways."
