Insight/Onsite for Design Professionals

Fallingwater in Autumn

During this three-day Insight/Onsite workshop, professional architects and designers will explore Fallingwater and reside on site at High Meadow. Insight/Onsite combines unfettered access to Fallingwater with discovery and observation, group exercises, technical explorations and in-depth discussions.

The experience provides participants with a unique understanding of Fallingwater and an opportunity to contemplate historic and contemporary applications of Frank Lloyd Wright’s ideas. Participants in this unique workshop will be eligible for continuing education learning units.

Insight/Onsite for Design Professionals is led by Ivan S. Chow, AIA, NCARB. Born in England, Chow grew up in Singapore, and has worked around the world as an artist and architect for over thirty years. He has degrees in architecture from UC Berkeley and Harvard Graduate School of Design and was a former dean at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Chow is also an award-winning artist and a 2019 Artist-in-Residence at Fallingwater.
