This masterpiece was built as a summer home for the Edgar Kaufmann family, who were prominent Pittsburgh merchants. Dramatic cantilevered terraces soar over a cascading waterfall. The living room hearth embodies an immense boulder in the setting nature created. Completed in 1939 with guest wing and servants’ quarters, it is as fresh today as when it was built. This breathtaking house was judged but the American Institute of Architects in 1986 to be the nation’s most successful example of architectural design.
