Before and After Fallingwater: Benno Janssen’s and Richard Neutra’s Houses for the Kaufmanns

The Kaufmann family is perhaps best known for Fallingwater, their weekend house in Bear Run designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) in 1935 and completed in 1939. A color pencil rendering of Fallingwater, and its architect, appeared on the cover of Time in 1938, forever linking the house to the prospering modernist architecture movement and solidifying it among the style’s great buildings.
