In 2019, Fallingwater, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most widely acclaimed works, which best exemplifies his philosophy of organic architecture, along with seven other Wright structures, was designated a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage site.
Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundations invites you to hear Scott Perkins, Director of Preservation and Collections at Fallingwater, who will discuss current and upcoming preservation projects at Fallingwater, located in the Laurel Highlands in Fayette County, about 70 miles east of Pittsburgh. He will also share recent acquisitions to the Fallingwater collection, as well as introduce the site’s 2021 exhibition architect Joseph Urban’s design for Kaufman’s Department Store.
The lecture, Fallingwater: Preserving a World Heritage Landmark, will be held virtually via Zoom on Thursday, January 28 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The cost of the lecture is $5. For more information, or to purchase your ticket, visit the Fallingwater: Preserving a World Heritage Landmark event page.
