While touring Fallingwater, the students were taken by surprise by different aspects of the home, particularly by the low ceilings. However, when they learned that this design was intentionally chosen to convey a sense of compression and release when stepping into a room, the students began to really understand the concept Frank Lloyd Wright was trying to achieve.
Fallingwater visually illustrated construction methods and topics that students of our Engineering Technology specialized associate degree program have explored in their Architectural CAD I course, such as cantilevered construction; glass, masonry, and concrete materials; visual concepts; and styles of architecture. Today, this architectural masterpiece is open to the public as a museum and is designated as a National Historic Landmark.
