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." The cover design and focus of the magazine was revolutionary at the time and a direct challenge to the prominence of the East Coast as the center of architecture in the U.S. This issue features articles on a house by Harry Seidler, two houses by Marquis and Stoller, two projects by Burdette Keeland, an address by Walter Gropius at Columbia University, a heliport by Samuel Dory Carson and John S. Carson, and sculpture by André Bloc, among other articles. Very Good+, slight edge wear along spine; .5" circle of loss to printing on back cover likely from previous price sticker removal.
