year is 1934. Frank Lloyd Wright's career is on the rocks. Wright is broke. His Wisconsin home, Taliesin, is in
foreclosure, and numerous creditors are hounding him. After a fortuitous meeting with Edgar Kaufmann Sr., the "Merchant
Prince of Pittsburgh", a commision for a country house near a waterfall 45 miles south of the city is secured and planned.
The resulting structure quickly becomes the most famous home in America, revitalizes Wright's career to new heights, and elevates
Kaufmann to a social status rivaling any of the famous Pittsburgh millionaires. Fallingwater has never stopped receiving
critical accolades, and foreign architectural students board planes and ships regularly to pilgrimage to Fallingwater to experience
this pinacle of organic architecture.
