The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, the University of Pittsburgh’s Architectural Studies Program, and Carnegie Museum of Art will hold a symposium exploring strategies for preserving and interpreting iconic modern house museums in celebration of Fallingwater’s 75th anniversary:
“When he designed Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright abandoned conventional notions of building and living. New materials and technologies permitted unprecedented experimentation, while creating unexpected challenges that define the modern movement. ”
The event, entitled Private Domain/Public Displays: The Modern House Interpreted, will take place on 5 April 2011 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the Carnegie Museum of Art.
Registration fees are $30 for the general public; $25 for professionals working for nonprofits; free for students with valid ID. Fee includes lectures and refreshments. For more information or to register, visit http://fallingwater.org/125 or call Fallingwater Visitor Services at 724.329.8501.
