Amazing Architecture: Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania, the state where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed, a state rich with historical context and minds. In this iteration of Amazing Architecture, we will see some of the most influential historical and contemporary architectural sites in the state of Pennsylvania.
Fallingwater- located in Mill Run, this house was designed in 1939 by the renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright, someone who's come up many times in this series! Known as a masterpiece in the world of organic architecture, this house seamlessly blends itself with the natural waterfall in the area. Constructed with natural stone, it complements its surroundings incredibly. This home was listed as a National Historic Landmark in 1966 and a World Heritage site in 2019.
City Hall- in Philadelphia, this building was the tallest habitable building at the time of its completion in 1894, and stands today as one of the most impressive government structures. Layered with marble, brick, and limestone, its gothic design and towering clock tower gives it an extremely powerful presence. Named a National Historic Landmark in 1976 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 2006.
