Fallingwater, Carnegie Science Center Fallingwater

Fallingwater.

A name seemingly coined on the spot as Frank Lloyd Wright hurried to finish his blueprints for the Kaufmann family-even then it embodied the vision of a house that would revolutionize the world of architecture and become an iconic western Pennsylvania landmark. At a time when Pittsburgh was a haven for industry and opportunity, Fallingwater reflected a blend of eccentricity, modernism, and courage. Edgar Kaufmann, Sr.

was the owner of Kaufmann's, one of the most profitable retail stores in the United States, and was regarded as a charismatic, respected, and business savvy gentleman. During the Great Depression, he played a role in New Deal public works programs. During that time, he met Frank Lloyd Wright and immediately was intrigued by his enlightened ideas and unorthodox tastes.
