Fallingwater

Fallingwater is a house in the mountains of Southwestern Pennsylvania designed in 1935 by renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) for the Kaufmann family, owners of Pittsburgh’s largest department store. One of Wright’s most widely acclaimed works, Fallingwater exemplifies his philosophy of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature. It truly celebrates the power of design in harmony with nature!

"One of the 12 landmarks that will change the way you see the world." – Travel + Leisure Magazine

In this guided tour you will experience Frank Lloyd Wright’s most recognized example of the union of architecture and nature. As you walk the beautiful, forested grounds and explore the house from both interior spaces and outdoor cantilevered terraces, you will closely examine Fallingwater’s intimate relationship with the mountainous landscape that inspired its design. Inside the living room, one of modern architecture’s most iconic spaces, you will experience Wright’s pioneering idea of “breaking the box” and see an exceptional collection of fine and decorative art as well as custom-made furniture designed by Wright specifically for Fallingwater. You will go behind-the-scenes to see the kitchen and servants’ sitting room, and, as if you were guests of the Kaufmann family, experience the living and sleeping accommodations in the Guest House.
