Case study houses, 1945-1962
Since the popular Museum of Contemporary Art exhibit of 1989, "Blueprints for Modern Living", much attention has been paid to the pioneering work done by the architects of the Case Study Program. With the catalogue for that exhibit long out of print, this study remains the definitive work on the project. Sponsored by John Entenza's Arts & Architecture magazine, the Case Study Houses program brought new thinking, techniques, and materials to post-war California house building. Contains the work of Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Craig Ellwood.
