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 houses became icons of the Mid-Century modernist movement. 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 Le Corbusier, houses by George Vernon Russell, Ronald E. Golman, Thorton M. Abell, and Harold Lionel Esten; and an office building by Craig Ellwood Associates, among other articles. Item #226.
