Located deep in the Laurel Highlands near Fallingwater & Kentuck Knob. John Rattenbury was a principal architect and planner for Taliesin Architects until 2003. A former Wright apprentice, Rattenbury has made efforts to educate the public about Organic Architecture. This project was much in the spirit of Wright’s 1938 Life Magazine Dream House because of its adherence to the same principles. He wrote two books, A Living Architecture and A House for Life (based on the above home design).
