Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Fallingwater. Constructed for the Kaufmanns in 1935, guest house completed in 1938. It’s an obvious modern design and in many instances ultra modern by today’s standards. It is gorgeous. It’s on Smithsonian’s list of things to see before you die. Frank Lloyd Wright was an architectural genius but a somewhat complex human. We certainly do love his buildings!!!  The Kaifmann’s only son inherited it and eventually gave it to the Wesyern Pennsylvania Conservancy to be appreciated by the public and for them to be able to meander through it as guests of the family. Every room is available for viewing, but only on a tour.

“The good building is not one that hurts the landscape, but one which makes the landscape more beautiful than it was before the building was built.” Frank Lloyd Wright
