Pittsburgh Travel Guide



Just 60 miles (about 95km) south-east of Pittsburgh on Interstate 76, Fallingwater is an absolute must-see attraction. The house, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 for retail giant Edgar J. Kaufman, is situated among the waterfalls and woods of the beautiful Bear Run Nature Reserve, and remains the world's best example of what has come to be known as 'organic architecture'. A stupefying achievement, Wright managed to design a fully-functioning personal residence that blends fluidly and harmoniously with its natural setting: the sound of rushing water is a constant, susurrus presence in the house; a boulder juts out into the living room and doubles as a hearth; the windows open outward from the corners of the walls, leaving no panes to obstruct the natural view. Ayn Rand was so inspired by this triumphant feat of individualistic artistic expression, that she largely based her novel on Wright's ingenuous creation. Fallingwater has been included in magazine's list of '28 places
