Fallingwater: World Heritage Preserved

June 20, 2023

As Fallingwater begins its largest preservation project in two decades, new technologies, methods, and materials to address the effects of water infiltration are being explored. The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy presents a lecture about some of these initiatives. Scott W. Perkins, Senior Director of Preservation and Collections, Fallingwater, discusses the challenges of working on a landmark Wright design cantilevered over a waterfall. Fallingwater, designed by Wright for Edgar and Liliane Kaufmann, is a National Historic Landmark, and is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of The 20th-Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright.
