Every building is built for a reason. Some buildings are meant to be lived in, while others are built to be businesses, schools, palaces, and more! We can learn a lot when we look closely at buildings, especially about the people who built or lived in them, how they were built, and what they were used for. Buildings come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. Some buildings are so beautiful or interesting, they become famous!

The fabrics of Fallingwater are special for many different reasons. Edgar Kaufmann jr. felt that fabrics were important accents to Wright’s architecture and that without the color and warmth they provided, Fallingwater looked cold and uninviting. Some of the fabrics have traveled far distances and are very old. The rugs, throws, pillows, and furniture fabrics all have stories to tell.
Sculptures are three-dimensional forms that you can walk around, look at from all different sides, and sometimes even walk through. They can be very tall or really small and can be made of just about anything, including stone, clay, metal, wood, glass, ice, snow, chocolate, and more!
