Welcome to the DFW Mid-Cities Chapter!
8/16- DFW Mid-Cities Chapter - August Meeting
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are swapping out our presenters at this week's meeting. Our apologies but we have another great presentation for you by Jorge Suarez on the restoration of the Frank Lloyd Wright Falling water House.
The historic Frank Lloyd Wright house in Western Pennsylvania has experienced structural decay and excessive deflections of the cantilevered portions of the concrete facade. The main beams supporting the structure were under-reinforced and deflections were as high as 7 inches for the 15-foot cantilever.
The Western Pennsylvania Conservatory, which owns and maintains the house, looked for a solution to arrest the deflections and provide a long-lasting repair and restoration of the masterpiece house. This presentation outlines the design concepts and construction of the unique external post-tensioning fix developed for the project.
