Description

Case Study Houses presents a monumental retrospective of the historic Case Study Homes program. From 1945 to 1966—during the postwar building boom, the highly experimental program built 36 prototype houses in the Los Angeles area that could be easily and economically constructed. Essentially re-defining the modern home and rendering a pronounced influence on American and international architecture, the innovative project was able to attract some of architecture’s greatest talents, such as Richard Neutra, Eero Saarinen, and Charles and Ray Eames. This unique volume is comprised of 440 pages of comprehensive documentation, brilliant photographs from the period and, for the houses still in existence, contemporary photos, as well as extensive floor plans and sketches.
