Both the beautiful Fallingwater and the gorgeous Kentuck Knob are architectural masterpieces located in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Both were designed by the famous and talented architect Frank Lloyd Wright, but for two different families. Fallingwater was designed for the owners of Kaufmann’s department stores, the Kaufman family. While Kentuck Knob was designed for their friends, the Hagan family. The house are both similar in many ways, but also have many stunning differences. First of all, the houses have very important similar locations. Both are located in the rolling mountains of Fayette County in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The hills and majestic natural landscape make a beautiful backdrop for both houses. Both follow the same idea of fitting “organically” into the setting around them. But Fallingwater was designed as a weekend …show more content…
What makes these houses so wonderful is a splendid combination of both the unique locations, in Fallingwater a hillside over the waters of Bear Run, and in Kentuck Knob the beautiful valleys of Youghiogheny River Gorge, and the perfectly used building materials. Such as, in Fallingwater, the use of the cantilevers to suspend the house over the hillside and the incredible sandstone, concrete, glass, steel, and North Carolina Walnut used. In Kentuck Knob the beautiful copper roofs and the stunning tidewater red cypress. These houses are so incredible, that they are open to the public today. Fallingwater is now owned and cared for by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and has guided tours daily. On the other hand, Kentuck Knob can be viewed only in parts of the year where the owners, Lord Palumbo and family, are not in residence-a practice which is quite common in the United Kingdom. In conclusion, both houses stood the test of time and are wonderful evidence of the creative mind of Frank Lloyd

In his twenties, he wrote a book entitled “Ridge Cliff Manor” that explained how he viewed the mansion as a kid, haunted and filled with secrets. Arial Ruffins mentions that after the release of “Ridge Cliff Manor,” Upp bought Rivercene and turned it into the haunted bed and breakfast that the mansion is today (KOMU). Even though Upp wasn’t the one who built Rivercene, his actions still made an impact on its legacy. Without the publication of his book and hard work, Rivercene would not be famous for his hauntings. Which proves that both Kinney and Upp’s persevering actions led to the creation of Rivercene’s
For this architectural comparison, I will be going deep into the comparing and contrasting of two iconic American homes, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and President Donald Trump’s Mar a Lago Florida home. Although these two beautiful homes serve the same primary function, they are intrinsically different, as seen through their history and rich architectural styles. First, are the necessary facts to be familiar with regarding the two homes. Thomas Jefferson was the architect of his own home, Monticello, located outside Charlottesville, VA. It is important to note that this home was built in two phases, with initial construction of the first phase beginning before the Revolution in 1768, and the house being completely finished with the second
For the Money or for Religion The Plymouth Plantation and Jamestown were two colonies who both established in the “new world” which is now known as the United States of America. These two colonies did have similarities in how they lived, but they also came for different reasons. One colony came for religious reasons and the other came for the business and money.
In 1607, the attraction to the East Coast started off with the first permanent English settlement in North America, Jamestown. After Jamestown was founded no other colonies were made until 1620 with the Plymouth colony in Massachusetts. Not long after the founding of the first two colonies, eleven other colonies were created. Even with this many colonies I believe the first two colonies to be the most influential and insightful because they set the example for all of the other colonies. Because I believe these two colonies to be the most impactful I will start with history and then break down and compare different aspects including location, motivations, early years, religious differences, native relations, and economic standpoints.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be from Jamestown? Maybe you would like to know how it feels to be a pilgrim. Here, I will show you the differences and some similarities of the two groups of people. While one is based on religion and another on business, they have a lot of similarities. Of course you can’t expect many differences.

The Chesapeake and New England regions settled in the new world with different economic and religious beliefs, which led to different traditions and interests.

The Chesapeake part of the land was filled with men in search of property, and economic opportunity. The New England part of the land had families who had ventured into the new world to find a place to practice their religions that were forbidden in England. Mostly, the Chesapeake men spent their time trying to earn a living off selling tobacco, planting on their farms or plantations, or searching for gold.
For example, the shelter has a ledge on the top of his shelter to protect him from rain. Normal houses have a ceiling or a roof to protect them, but Brian’s new home has an actual ledge on the top. Another way the shelter was unique was that the whole place was built with rocks! All houses are usually made with bricks or wood, but Brian made it with actual rocks. Now, whose house has that?

The New World was home to Native Americans before it was ever home to Europeans. Europeans, mostly the English were who began to shape it to their needs and personal identities.

Towards the end of the Middle Ages, the monarchy began to expand their power and influence, eventually becoming absolute rulers. Having support from the merchant class, the monarchy attempted to unify and stabilize the nation states. In the late seventeenth, early eighteenth centuries, with hopes of expanding English trade and acquiring a broader market for English manufactured goods, the nation states were wealthy enough to fund voyages of discovery and exploration. Over time, ten colonies were established along the Atlantic coast of North America. The first permanent English settlement was established in Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607 and in 1620 a ship landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts, marking it as the second permanent English settlement.
The Jamestown settlement is located in Virginia, it was the first permanent english settlement. They decided to settle there because it was hard for enemies to reach them through the narrow channel, and the thick forest around them provided plenty of lumber and the water surrounding them provided fish. The first colony was founded by a group of investors by the name of the london company. They fell because of lack of preparation, sickness during the winter spread rapidly and many died. In the year of 1624 Virginia fell under the rule of a royal colony and existed under the authority of a governor chosen by the king of England.
Everything past the bait shop is just nature and occasional farms. I really enjoy the outdoor nature feeling especially during the summer. I always look out the window at all the different trees and wildlife. When we get close my dad begins to drive very slowly due to the giant ditches in the dirt “road”. My dad stops after each ditch and plans out how he is going to get around the next one without his car slipping into it.
