Fallingwater

Fallingwater

I’m obsessed with modern architecture and mid-century modern furniture, so it was a real treat to head on out to Pittsburgh and visit nearby Fallingwater. For non-architecture geeks, Fallingwater is one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s greatest buildings. The impressive structure was build on the side of a waterfall and completed in 1937. In the past two years I’ve had the chance to visit some pretty amazing structures including Wright’s Hollyhock House in LA and Phillip Johnson’s compound in CT, but with the exception of maybe Sagrada Família in Barcelona, this might be the single most breathtaking building I’ve laid eyes on.

The photo above was captured from the “viewing” spot that most tourists get their snapshots at. I just added a bit of vignette and warmed up the white balance. If you ever get a chance to see Fallingwater, please don’t pass it up. The cheaper tours are under $20 and for $50 you get a long tour and the ability to take indoor photos.
