About Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959)
Widely considered to be the greatest American architect of the 20th century, Wright influenced architecture around the world, but made his mark on the American landscape.
Wright’s influence extended from hundreds of realized buildings, over a thousand conceptual designs, apprenticeships, publications and exhibitions that continue to inspire the work of architects today. In 2019, eight of Wrights major works, including Fallingwater, were inscribed to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage List – a recognition that further confirms Wright’s significance to world architecture and culture.
This website provides information about Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob and Polymath Park, including directions to each location, information about things to do and places to stay – so you can immerse yourself in Wright in the Laurel Highlands!
