Summary "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 completed 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 from a uniquely personal point of view and addressed to all readers who are inspired by nature and architecture, this book is illustrated with contemporary color photographs, historical black-and-white images, and Frank Lloyd Wright's original drawings."--BOOK JACKET
