Location & Cost

SYMPOSIUM

Fallingwater, in Southwestern Pennsylvania, is Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous project, and arguably his finest house. A destination for architects, landscape architects, historians, designers, and artists, as well as thegeneral public, Fallingwater offers a perfect context in which to conduct the twelfth annual symposium of ACSF. The house Fallingwater (1936-1939), the Visitor’s Center (Paul MayĆ©n, 1977), The Barn (Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, 2002), and the High Meadow dwellings (Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, 2016), together with the expansive lands of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, offer fine architecture in an excellent natural setting in which to pause and reflect on the symposium theme. We will host a evening reception/dinner at Fallingwater that will include a full tour of the house. This is an unique chance not to be missed (the cost of this event is included in the symposium fee). A short drive away we will tour another fine Frank Lloyd Wright house, Kentuck Knob (1953-56). The house is owned by Lord Peter Palumbo, who maintains a collection of outdoor sculpture on the site, including works by Andy Goldsworthy, Anthony Caro, Wendy Taylor, Phillip King, George Rickey, Harry Bertoia, and others.

ACCOMMODATIONS

Attendees will receive group rates for the Holiday Inn Express & Suites ($114/night for Wed. and Thur and $155/night for Fri/Sat, single or double occupancy, prices include 11% tax) and the Days Inn ($79/night, single or double occupancy, plus 11% tax) both in Donegal, PA (30 minute drive to Fallingwater). Breakfast and parking are provided at both housing options. Other alternative lodging options are available in the area but we recommend these two as they are at a discount and where most attendees will stay. ALL lunches, snack breaks, and dinners will be catered at Fallingwater and covered by the symposium fee.

Reservations for either lodging will start by mid-March and done in parallel to Symposium Registration. Reservation priority will be given to presentes until early April 2022 and then open to all. Non-presenters interested in getting in the waiting list for symposium registration and lodging (we have a 75 attendee cap) should contact Julio Bermudez at acsf2022fallingwater@gmail.com . Please, don't try to book a room without registering for the symposium as you won't receive the special discount (and there may not be availability either).
