This volume of modern Californian homes begins at the end of World War II. John Entenza, the editor of "Arts & Architecture" commissioned a group of architects to experiment with new materials, techniques and designs. Included among the Case Study Houses are homes by Charles Eames, Pierre Koenig, Craig Ellwood, Eero Saarinen and many other innovative, modernist architects and designers. This is a scarce and invaluable text for architects, historians, and preservationists.
