_______________________

In 1935, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a country house for the Kaufmann family over a small stream in Western Pennsylvania. He named it Fallingwater. It remains one of Wright’s most acclaimed buildings. Fallingwater, perhaps more than any other building, exemplifies Wright’s concept of ‘organic’ architecture, which seeks to harmonize people and nature by integrating the building, the site, and its inhabitants into a unified whole. It has been named “the best all-time work of American architecture” by the American Institute of Architects. And today, the iconic image of the house over the waterfall, remains a testament to a great architect working at the height of his career.

The story of Fallingwater is about the relationships between the site, the building, the clients, and the architect. Lynda Waggoner, Director of Fallingwater, along with architectural historian, Richard Cleary, draw upon personal experiences and historical records to explain the unique circumstances which came together to create this true American Masterpiece.
