High School Virtual Summer Camp: Studio 1

Fallingwater Education: High School Residency Studio 1

COVID-19 Update: For the safety of students and staff, High School Residency: Studio 1 will be presented as a Virtual Summer Camp during the summer of 2021. Studio materials will be provided by mail. Streaming-quality internet connection and device with video chat capability required.

When Fallingwater was constructed, Edgar Kaufmann, jr. was a young man who had explored several potential career paths ranging from studio art to architecture at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Fellowship. His trial and error approach to career exploration combined with time spent at Fallingwater led him to his successful career as a curator and professor of architecture and art history.

High School Virtual Summer Camp: Studio 1 is for students in grades 9 through 12 who are curious about careers in design, architecture or the visual arts. Program activities include individual and collaborative projects, drawing, model-making exercises, and daily drawing sessions in and around Fallingwater. Led by professional teaching architects, this program provides an opportunity for students to examine and explore Frank Lloyd Wright's ideas while living and studying at Fallingwater’s remarkable site.


  • Livestream access to Fallingwater
  • Architecture and design exercises with hands-on drawing and design projects inspired by Fallingwater

Any student entering grades 9 through 12 is eligible to apply. No previous design experience is required. Students curious about architecture, design or visual art careers are strongly encouraged to apply. Enrollment is limited.
