PlansMatter

PlansMatter is the Airbnb for fans of great architecture. This new app/service offers a choice of homes available to rent, but unlike its famous predecessor, all the listings are stunning works of art. The site lists several modern rental houses designed by respected architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Olson Kundig, Christian Muller, and many more. The goal is to make these places easily available for architecture nerds to experience on their own. The site also boasts pages of architect bios with links to their properites available for rent. If you’re a true architecture buff, these are experiences you can’t put a price tag on.
