Traveling in today’s climate is less about seeking a vacation filled with copious activities, but more so fulfilling a need to temporarily relocate, ideally before one goes full Jack Nicholson in The Shining. Long gone are the days when a vacation meant using your hotel or rental as a pit-stop, a place to lay your head and not much else. Trip are largely centered around these spaces now.

So it’s time to view them as experiences in and of themselves. If you’re looking for a place to stay that is going to serve as the main attraction of your trip, why not consider an architectural masterpiece.

Viewing an impressive work of architecture from the exterior is a fulfilling enough experience, but there’s something to be said for experiencing these spaces as they were originally intended — to be lived in. Now for a few days or week (or even longer), you can afford yourself the luxury (without the full price) of immersing yourself in the design and architecture from the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright and Olson Kundig.

Below are 10 Airbnbs that will satisfy a range of architectural tastes, from a historic Italianate home in Ohio to a Frank Lloyd Wright mid-century house in Galesburg, Michigan.
