Fallingwater or Kaufmann Residence is a house designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, 43 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The home was built partly over a waterfall on Bear Run and is considered one of Wright's most beautiful works.

I,too, have been here several times when I lived in Pittsburgh, but I don't think ever in the fall. And I certainly would agree that it's among is most beautiful work - we have been to all of his installations except houses in Calif. This is a gorgeous capture of it - the framing, the soft colors, the water really make it shine! #10401290

Wonderful capture of this iconic home; nice to see it without the steel supports below... I haven't been since that era of restoration. #10415667
