Organization Profile





Fallingwater, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most widely acclaimed works, was designed in 1935 for the family of Pittsburgh department store owner Edgar J. Kaufmann. Construction of the house began in 1936, and the house’s acclaim has grown steadily since that time. Perhaps better than any single work, Fallingwater exemplifies Wright’s concept of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature. The key to the setting of Fallingwater is the waterfall over which it is built. Historically, the falls were a focal point of the Kaufmanns’ activities, and the family indicated to Wright their desire to locate their weekend house near them. Much to their surprise, Wright designed the house to rise above the waterfall, rather than face it. The Kaufmanns adopted Wright’s original scheme with few changes. Fallingwater is owned and operated by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.
