The Presence of the Case Study Houses

Front Cover
Birkhäuser-Publishers for Architecture, Jan 1, 2004 - Architecture - 315 pages
Minimalism, the inspiration of art and wide spaces, lightness and an effective show-casing - these are just a few of the elements that link the Case Study Houses of architects Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Richard Neutra, Craig Ellwood et al. to the present day and contribute to their ongoing fascination and influence on housing concepts. Numerous previously unpublished ex- and interior illustrations are supplemented by detailed research carried out locally into current forms of occupation and life-style, alterations and conversions, as well as the significance of the Case Study Houses for today's understanding of building for residential requirements.
