From the Back Cover:

A landmark of modern architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater is also a consummate application of mechanics of materials, combining imaginative structural design with innovative choices of materials. His use of reinforced concrete to extend the structure over the waterfall anticipated the many current applications of composite materials.
