Case Study House #8 — The Eames House by Charles and Ray Eames

The architects in the room that day included Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Ralph Rapson and Richard Neutra – all luminaries of the modernism movement. The program began as a means to show new methods for building mass-produced housing using advanced building materials. Of the 33 planned designs, 27 were actually built. Most were built in southern California, and nearly half of those homes are now protected as national historic landmarks.

Case Study House #22 — The Stahl House by Pierre Koenig

The world’s greatest architects most certainly got together for a good cause – to create affordable housing for young soldiers returning home after the war. Unfortunately, the designs were so ahead of their time that not a single house was ever recreated for mass production. All of the homes built ended up as one-off designs and are considered among the greatest examples of modern residential housing ever conceived.
