At Nature's Edge: Frank Lloyd Wright's Artist Studio Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Perched high on a cliff above the Snake River in a remote area of Idaho, Frank Lloyd Wright’s artist studio is a testament to the architect’s total mastery of his craft. The simple, one-room studio Wright designed for Idaho landscape painter Archie Boyd Teater and Patricia Teater in 1952 is a sophisticated, complex work of art. As Wright’s only artist studio (other than his own), the structure was intended to foster the creative life. Located on one of the most spectacular natural sites Wright ever worked with, the studio at Teater’s Knoll is a premier example of organic architecture at its best, where the fundamental integration with nature blurs the meeting of building and nature.

At Nature’s Edge chronicles the design and history of the studio and the restorations that were necessary to preserve it after years of neglect. Written for all readers who are inspired by nature and architecture, the book is vividly illustrated with contemporary color photographs, historical black and white images, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s original drawings.

Book News Annotation:

Whiting, an architectural writer, describes the design and history of an artist's studio designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Idaho's Hagerman Valley, built for painter Archie Teater and his wife. Whiting restored the studio in the 1980s and 1990s and also recounts this process. He provides facsimiles of Wright's plans and photos of the studio and area. There is no index.
