This summer my kids and I had an “architecture fun day” where we visited two Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes within easy driving distance of Pittsburgh: Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob. Now, you can’t take photos inside either house but both are worth a visit to see for yourself. In the meantime, I took a few photos outside that will let you feel like you were there. In this post I’m focusing on Kentuck Knob’s Woodland Walking Trail (which is home to 30+ sculptures) but I have to start with one of my favorite photos we got at Fallingwater.
Before we visited, we built my Lego Fallingwater set (again) and took it with us. Hey, Lego Fallingwater, meet the real Fallingwater!
Love the wooden ‘skylights’ at Kentuck Knob. Wouldn’t it be nice to sit outside and watch the light move through them as the sun changed positions in the sky?
Lovely patio at the end of the house tour at Kentuck Knob.
The view from Kentuck Knob on a clear day is amazing.
The beginning of the sculpture trail just after leaving the house tour at Kentuck Knob.
Three examples of the kinds of sculpture to see along the trail.
One of my favorite pieces on the sculpture trail at Kentuck Knob: Red Army (1991), Painted Steel, by Ray Smith.
A section of the Berlin Wall (1961-1989) is on the sculpture trail at Kentuck Knob.
Thanks for stopping by the blog!
