Case Study House Drawings and Images from the Pages of Arts and Architecture

John Entenza, editor and publisher of Arts and Architecture magazine from 1940 to 1960, used the pages of the magazine to launch the Case Study House Program. He sought, according to the January 1945 announcement of the program, to spur new thinking in the design of contemporary post-war “dwelling units.” A & A has now uploaded to the Web copies of the articles on the houses created through the program. See the drawings and images of the homes built by the leading mid-century modern architects: Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Pierre Koenig, Richard Neutra among others.
