This iconic building began to be built in 1936, is partially based on a small waterfall, using as components the natural elements present there from the rocks, the vegetation and even the water itself.

Its owner was a businessman, Edgar Kaufmann. Initially, it was used as a family vacation home and in 1963 the owner’s son donated it to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy having been opened as a museum a year later and continuing to the present day. Since its opening, to date, over 6 million people have visited this house museum.

The Fallingwater House is considered one of its architect’s greatest masterpieces, as Wright managed to create such natural surroundings of the house with nature. This construction was influenced by Japanese architecture which is reflected in the sensibility and balance of space. Integration with nature is experienced in the smallest details, the wood stove that we find in the living room was built with indigenous rocks.

Integration with Nature

The glass of the windows is cast directly into the stone wall and the traditional metal friezes have not been placed and the stairs have been built to connect directly to the water. The river sound that surrounds the house can be heard all over the house, and the existing swimming pool is continuously fed by natural water flowing into a stream.

This house consists of two parts joined by a natural stone bridge, the main house and the guest/employee house.

Fallingwater House has been voted by Time magazine as the “most beautiful work of Wright”. Is also listed on the Smithsonian magazine “Life List” as one of the “28 places to visit before… it’s too late“. In 1966, it was considered a National Historic Landmark named by the American Institute of Architects for the “best work ever of American architecture“.

There are plenty of good reasons to visit this house from its rich history to indescribable beauty. Visit it!
