Since their origins over half a century ago, the Case Study Houses have ranked among the classics of architectural modernism. In a journey into the present reality of the Case Study Houses, the two authors of this book have systematically visited and photographed the houses and their owners. Viewing these projects through the lens not only of practicing architects, teachers and critics, but also of representatives of Old Europe confronting the achievements of the New World, they describe and elaborate the stories of some of the most thrilling residential projects of the last century.

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.

The 'Case Study House' program ranks among the most influential and innovative projects in American architectural history of the post-war period and has lost none of its fascination even today. The experimental designs of renowned avant-garde architects such as Richard Neutra, Craig Ellwood, Raphael Soriano and Eero Saarinen succeeded in presenting unique houses that completely redefined the concept of modern living. 0The present publication interprets the 'Case Study Houses' using the new digital tools that architects now have at their disposal and which make the projects accessible in a wholly different way. While traditional documentation provides floor plans, sections, elevations and perspectives, we are now achieving new insights into the concepts, structure, construction, design and spatial effects of the houses by using 3D models, BIM data and atmospheric visualization as well as advanced image processing. It is even possible to download 3D models of some of the houses and try out novel approaches to individual projects. Above all, the book will serve as an inspiration for new architectural ideas and promote the use of these technologies in the design, visualization and realization of such concepts in creative and innovative ways.

A heavily illustrated and highly designed tribute to Los Angeles architect Pierre Koenig, a key figure of the Los Angeles Modernist movement. In this remarkable and gorgeously illustrated book, Neil Jackson presents a vibrant profile of the Los Angeles architect Pierre Koenig, who Time magazine said lived long enough to become “cool twice.” From the influences of Koenig’s youth in San Francisco and his military service during World War II to the Case Study Houses and his later award-laden years, Jackson’s study plots the evolution of Koenig’s oeuvre against the backdrop of Los Angeles—a city that both shaped and was shaped by his architecture. The book is anchored by Jackson’s exciting discoveries in Koenig’s archive at the Getty Research Institute. Drawings, photographs, diaries, letters, lecture notes, building contracts, and university projects—many of which are published for the first time—provide an expanded understanding of Koenig and additional context for his architectural achievements. An examination of Koenig’s Case Study Houses shows how his often single-minded and pragmatic approach to domestic architecture recognized the advantages of production housing and presciently embraced sustainable, ecologically responsible design. A new account of the Chemehuevi housing project in Havasu Lake, California, demonstrates the special role that learning and teaching played in the development of his architecture. Over his fifty-year career, Koenig not only designed iconic houses but also directed their restoration and curated their legacy, ensuring that his work could be seen and appreciated by present and future admirers of midcentury Los Angeles.
