Did you know that some of the world’s most stunning treasures of the architectural realm are found in Southwestern Pennsylvania? The Laurel Highlands was an inspiration for Frank Lloyd Wright’s construction of a summer home finished in 1938 for the Kaufmann family. Known for the beautiful flow and cascades of water that run underneath, Fallingwater has now been toured by over 6 million visitors.
Frank Lloyd Wright is known as the greatest in American Architecture. Often recognized for his organic architecture, Fallingwater is the best-known example of breaking out of all the boxes in this style. In designing over one thousand works, Wright made it apparent that the structure and its environment were one harmonious composition. Fallingwater is truly a structural feat where nature and architecture meet.
Guided house tours at Fallingwater include exploring the outside as well as the inside of both the main home of the Kaufmann’s and their adjacent guesthouse. Take in the beauty of the monumental structure’s exterior and wait for more amazement with the interiors. Still furnished with original furniture, art and collections from the family, the space takes you back in time with intricate features sure to impress.
