Frank Lloyd Wright’s FALLINGWATER


Nothing you have read or learned about Fallingwater can compare to the experience of visiting in person.  The Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece, nestled within the lush, wooded Bear Run Nature Reserve, is a timeless monument to organic architecture at its best.

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.

I hope you enjoy the photos I took of this amazing work of organic architecture:  the harmonious union of art and nature.

There were no photographs allowed to be taken of the inside of this home, but I found this YouTube video that shows the inside of the home and more information about it.  Please watch.


First of all I wish to thank Lenzner Tour and Travel for putting this tour together.  It was a beautiful, amazing and exciting tour with professional director, guides and skilled driver.

Second, my thanks goes to The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy who owns, maintains and operates Fallingwater.

  5. Absolutely fabulous, Francine. You were so fortunate to be able to see this stunning house. What a great architect he was.

  6. Aren’t his designs incredible? Fallingwater is probably my favorite, though I’ve never been lucky enough to see it in person. We’re lucky to have a number his homes in the Chicagoland area. Such a gifted man. Thanks for sharing Fallingwater with us, Francine.

  7. So envious Francine 🙂 Visiting Falling Water is a longstanding dream.Thank you for sharing your photos.

  8. Eco-friendly post-modern architecture, and it still incorporates all of the original sculptures in the original locations after two-thirds of a century. Remarkable.

    Growing up, I used to fantasize about designing and living in a house like this.

    You had a great opportunity to see this, Francine.

  9. what a privilege to come on the tour with you Francine! my architect husband was very strongly influenced by FLW, and people sometimes comment on our house being rather FLW …. i will post a photo of it one day 🙂

  10. Wow Francine, I had vaguely heard of Falling Water but had no idea what it was like. Your visit looks amazing and we are privileged to have shared it with you, thanks.

  11. Outstanding post! I always enjoy the commentaries you post along with your photographs! Great job! 🙂


  12. Is it as striking as it looks?!

    • Yes, even more so in person. It is located in the beautiful woods and really has four levels with the top level, not seen in photo is a connected guest house. Just beautiful. Thanks for your comment.

  13. Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob are wonderful FLLW sites. I loved Buffalo, NY because there are a lot of lovely Wright homes you can tour there too. I’ve got to get to Chicago and Wisconsin to see some of those! Another great post, Francine, Thanks for the info. Cheers, Rita
