This course describes a case study of the design and construction of the most famous residential home in the United States and possibly the world. This is the story of the restoration of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece, Fallingwater in Pennsylvania. The unique engineering repair using modern materials and external post-tensioning for the stabilization of a cultural, aesthetic landmark compliment the innovation of Wright himself.
