Visiting Fallingwater

Fallingwater was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (no relation) and is one of the greatest pieces of architecture anywhere.

It was designed as a mountain retreat for the Kaufmann Family in 1935.

Frank Lloyd Wright was the master of his craft and this house was a major pinnacle of his illustrious career.

 

I took these shots on a muggy, rainy day during a site seeing tour with my wife.

This was a major item on my bucket list and I’m happy to say that I’ve been there…it was an awesome experience.
