My last move was on April Fool’s Day of last year. I’m going through one of those boxes that’s been untouched for years….

I remember my visit there well. There was the sound of the falls in the house, the butterfly chairs we were told he had invented, the odd looking huge pink moth on one of the walls outside.

I’ve read he was quite the egomaniac as are many talented people. 

So over the years I’ve wondered how Wright and his clients, the Kaufmann’s of Pittsburgh’s eponymous department store , could take a beautiful waterfall in an idyllic valley surrounded by native rhododendron bushes and Hemlock trees, and dump tons of reinforced concrete in the middle of it and be proud of their work. 

Just my humble opinion 37 years after my visit. It is worth visiting if you’re in the Pittsburgh area.

It is printed on recycled paper, which was/is kinda neat especially for then.
