This is a unique opportunity to work at a world-renowned architectural site. The collections intern will be involved in a variety of tasks related to the restoration and maintenance of the historic buildings at Fallingwater. This includes Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece, and a variety of other historic structures throughout the 5,000 acre Bear Run Nature Reserve. The internship’s primary focus is hands-on masonry restoration of Fallingwater, involving stone repointing, cement plastering, and concrete patching. The student will also participate in other preservation projects throughout the summer, such as historic building assessments, inventories, documentation, and miscellaneous preservation repairs. The intern works under the supervision of the Curator of Buildings and Collections. We are looking for a graduate student with education or background experience in historic preservation, historic building trades, or architectural history and experience in assessing and documenting historic structures.
