Los Angeles: John D. Entenza, 1961. The influential West Coast architecture magazine known for its "Case Study Houses" Program in which in 1945 it proposed to "begin immediately the study, planning, actual design and construction of eight houses, each to fulfill the specifications of a special living problem in the Southern California area."
