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. Dramatically cantilevered over a waterfall, the house, perhaps better than any single work exemplifies Wright’s concept of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature. Named one of “50 places of a lifetime” by National Geographic Traveler, the house is open for tours daily except Wednesdays from mid-March through Thanksgiving weekend. Also open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in December and the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. The Visitor Center includes a Museum Store and Café, which offers a variety of group dining options. Interactive programs are available for student groups. Groups should allow a minimum of two hours.
