Arts & Architecture: June 1963; Vol. 80, No. 6

The influential West Coast architecture magazine known for its “Case Study Houses” Program in which in 1945 it proposed to “begin immediately the study, planning, actual design and construction of eight houses, each to fulfill the specifications of a special living problem in the Southern California area.” The cover design and focus of the magazine at the time was revolutionary and a direct challenge to the prominence of the East Coast as the center of architecture in the U.S.

This issue features articles on Case Study House No 27, a house in India by Balkrishna V. Doshi, a university building by Minoru Yamasaki & Associates, an office building by Martin Price, a house in Switzerland by Atelier 5 and an art center by S.O.M., among other articles. Item #220.
