Fallingwater endures as one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most iconic and inspirational architectural accomplishments and serves as a dynamic experiential and educational destination for all. Fallingwater’s Museum Store offers a wide range of products relating to Fallingwater’s architectural preeminence, architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s legacy, and other design and environmental themes. The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, the steward of this internationally significant educational resource, views Fallingwater as a tool for regional economic development and aspires to incorporate more regional artisan-made and small-batch manufactured products into the Museum Store’s offering. To realize this goal, Fallingwater and the Creative Business Accelerator have partnered to create the Fallingwater + PG&H Maker Project (FPMP), a design program for regional makers that brings together access to this historic site, education, and an exciting market opportunity.
The Fallingwater + PG&H Maker Project (FPMP) brings regional creatives together for incredible access to Fallingwater and its Museum Store (both physically as well as the Museum Store’s e-commerce site). This impactful opportunity brought 9 makers to Fallingwater for unprecedented access to one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most iconic and inspirational architectural accomplishments. Taking inspiration from this experience, FPMP design participants then developed prototypes for Fallingwater’s Museum Store and pitched these products to Fallingwater’s Museum store for purchase. Selected products will be available for purchase exclusively through the Fallingwater Museum Store.
