Ten buildings by the architectural legend were nominated to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The group contains the first works of modern architecture to be nominated by the U.S.

Fallingwater (1935, Mill Run, Pennsylvania). The legendary Fallingwater residence, a masterpiece in concrete, steel, and glass, is built with three levels that project over a 30-foot waterfall.

Jacob's House

Herbert and Katherine Jacobs House (1936, Madison, Wisconsin). This brick and wood abode, built affordably for a family, is an example of indoor-outdoor living—a wall of full-height glazed doors open onto a terrace.
