Frank Lloyd Wright’s unique studio home in Idaho is among those included on a new map celebrating the most significant Frank Lloyd Wright homes in 37 states across America.

The Archie Teater Studio was built in 1952 at Teater’s Knoll near Bliss. It was designed as a studio for Archie Teater, an iconic and prolific Idaho artist. It is now owned by landscape architect Henry Whiting, who divides his time between Ketchum and the Archie Teater Studio, which sits on the bluffs above the Snake River.

Wright set out to change the way we think about architecture in America and to change the way Americans lived their lives, says Home Advisor, which created the map. And his unique Prairie and Usonian home designs have forever changed the way we build our homes and have even changed the way many of us live our lives.

“His work has touched us all, even if we don’t know it,” Home Advisor says.

The project pays homage to such homes as the David & Gladys Wright House in Arizona, one of three spiral designs by Wright and a foreshadow of the shape of the Guggenheim museum. Also, the Hollyhock House in California, which features influences from Maya, Aztec, Asian and Egyptian architecture. Many of Wright’s homes were inspired by a visit to Japan.

The Archie Teater Studio was the only studio Wright put his name to, other than his own. A simple one-room parallelogram-shaped building, it features a sloping roofed design. The house, meant as a place for creativity, does not feature 90-degree angles like the average American home. Rather, it features 60- and 120-degree angles.

Wright built it at the same time he was designing the Guggenheim Museum.
