Frank Lloyd Wright // Falling Water // West Elevation
Built in 1936 for Pittsburgh department store owner Edgar Kaufmann Sr., Falling Water was voted the most important building of the 20th century in a poll conducted by the American Institute of Architects. The house was entrusted to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy by Edgar Kaufmann Jr. in 1963. It is the only Frank Lloyd Wright building open to the public that is complete with original furnishings, artwork and setting intact as designed by Wright. Kaufman Jr. said of the house, “Such a place cannot be possessed. It is a work of man for man; not by a man for a man...By its very intensity it is a public resource, not a private indulgence.”

About the Designer
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867—1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator who designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 532 works in his lifetime. Wright believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by his design for Fallingwater (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture". Wright was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning.
