PROJECT OF THE MONTH

Keeping Fallingwater Connected

https://bit.ly/3k1yksn

In 2019, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, owners of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, began restoration work on the doors and windows of the architect’s celebrated masterpiece. One of Wright’s primary goals in designing Fallingwater was reducing the visual barrier between the inside of the house and its iconic location above the falls of Bear Run in Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands. In 1934, this goal guided Wright’s decision to specify now-discontinued Waterwhite glass, a low-iron glass from then-PPG Glass, now Vitro Architectural Glass. Since Waterwhite glass is no longer made, Starphire UltraClear glass, today manufactured by Vitro, was selected. In 2019, the Conservancy determined that 69 of Fallingwater’s window and door sashes needed to be repaired, including 16 windows that required complete glass replacement. In addition to Starphire, Kuraray’s SentryGlas interlayer was also used.
