You’re in the Wright Place!

, ,


Designed in 1935 and completed in 1937, it is quite possible that Fallingwater just may be one of the most photographed, videoed, written about and talked about of Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs. It is likely one of the most famous buildings of the 20th century. Built over a waterfall, the house was supposed to serve as a weekend “retreat” for Edgar J. Kaufmann, Sr., the owner of a Pittsburgh, PA department store.

Says fallingwater.org: “Since Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater opened to the public in 1964, over five million visitors have experienced his masterwork.” And, a Wikipedia description says that “… it is listed among Smithsonian’s ‘Life List of 28 Places to See Before You Die’”. There is also a guest house there that was added to the property in 1939.

This is one of eight Frank Lloyd Wright sites added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. The home was entrusted to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy in 1963, and Fallingwater opened as a museum the following year.

About Me

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
