On Thursday, October 22nd, over 50 Architecture and Environmental Design (BSAED) students and faculty made the annual pilgrimage to Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1936 masterpiece, Fallingwater. For the first time in years, the weather was clear and warm – optimum conditions for sketching and photography. In addition to touring the building, students documents Wright’s articulation of architectural promenade through spatial compression and expansion and the play of light and shadow.
Despite an underwhelming box lunch, the visit, once again, proved to be a formative experience. Even after a 4-hour return trip, the studio still buzzing with excitement. In the words of one inspired student, “An amazing moment. [I am] full of emotions; want to cry and smile at the same time.”
