Also known as the Kaufmann Residence, Fallingwater is a house designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 in rural southwestern Pennsylvania. The house was built partly over a waterfall and was designed as a weekend home for the owner of Kaufmann's department store. Wright's intent with the above falls home was to provide a better view of the cascading falls rather than a below falls view. Fallingwater is cited as Wright's "most beautiful job" and one of the Smithsonian's Life List of 28 places "to visit before you die." Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966, the members of the American Institute of Architects named the house the "best all-time work of American architecture" in 1991.
