Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater gets new windows—at a great price

March 01, 2010 |


PPG IndustriesPPG Industries is donating more than 1,900 sf of Starphire ultra-clear glass to restore 319 windows at Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterwork in Mill Run, Pa., which was built in 1936. The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, owner of Fallingwater, said the five-year project will replace window glass that has become cloudy and lost its ability to filter ultraviolet light from constant exposure to moisture and high humidity at the home's waterfall setting. The Starphire glass will be combined with a UV interlayer from DuPont. TRACO will laminate and assemble the windows. All three companies are donating their materials and services.
