History of Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright
Fallingwater is the creation of America’s most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. This home is located in rural Pennsylvania, 43 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. Built for the Kaufmann family between 1936-1939, the house has become an instantly recognizable house that exemplified the high ambitions of 20th century building design. The house is known for “floating” above a waterfall below the house.
The main house uses 5,330 square feet with a guest house using 1,700 square feet. Since being open to the public in 1964, over 4.5 million people have visited the home. The Western Pennsyvlania Conservancy has preserved Fallingwater since 1963. The home is nestled into a wooded area surrounded by 5,000 acres of Bear Run Nature Reserve. Fallingwater is noted for being the only major work of Frank Lloyd Wright that is open to the public–complete with interior furnishing.
