Fallingwater Home LLoyd Wright PA

  • Since Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater opened to the public in 1964, more than five million visitors have experienced this architectural masterwork.
  • The Kaufmanns’ unique path as a family, which led them to the community of Bear Run, Pennsylvania, and eventually the architect Frank Lloyd Wright, would lay the foundation for Fallingwater—one of the greatest architectural triumphs of the 20th century.
  • An American architect, designer, writer and educator, Frank Lloyd Wright advanced organic architecture, which was best exemplified in his most widely acclaimed work: Fallingwater. 
  • Today, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is revered as one of history’s greatest architects—but by the time he reached his late 60s, many critics considered him to be washed up. Wright had only built a few buildings in the previous decade, the Great Depression had diminished demand for new projects, and, adding insult to injury, his younger peers considered his style to be anachronistic. Kaufmann—whose department store, Kaufmann’s, was later incorporated into Macy’s—helped resuscitate Wright’s career when he asked the architect to design a weekend home in the Laurel Highlands for his family.
  • FALLINGWATER’S CONSTRUCTION SITE WAS ORIGINALLY A “SUMMER CAMP” FOR KAUFMANN’S EMPLOYEES
  • WRIGHT IS RUMORED TO HAVE SKETCHED FALLINGWATER’S DESIGN IN ONLY TWO HOURS.
  • THE KAUFMANNS DIDN’T KNOW THAT THEIR HOME WOULD BE BUILT ATOP A WATERFALL
  • FALLINGWATER’S INTERIOR IS DESIGNED TO RESEMBLE NATURE 
  • FALLINGWATER STILL HAS ALL ITS ORIGINAL FURNISHINGS AND ARTWORK
  • FALLINGWATER HAS STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS.
  • Fallingwater is an architectural marvel, but it still has a few major flaws. Its skylights leak, the waterfall promotes mold growth (Kaufmann nicknamed Fallingwater “Rising Mildew”), and—even worse—the builders didn’t use enough reinforcing steel to support the first floor’s concrete skeleton.
