Sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine, the Case Study Homes program sought to respond to the postwar building boom with prototype modern homes that could be easily replicated and readily affordable to the average American. 36 Case Study homes were commissioned from major architects of the day, such as Richard Neutra, Raphael Soriano, Craig Ellwood, Charles and Ray Eames, Pierre Koenig, Eero Saarinen, A. Quincy Jones, and Ralph Rapson.
The results of the program would redefine the modern home and extend influence not only across the United States but internationally. This guide includes all of the Case Study Houses with over 150 photos and plans.
