“The Case Study House program, a landmark American architectural experiment was announced in 1945 by publisher, John Entenza, in his magazine, Arts and Architecture. The impetus of the program was to build homes, which would serve as model environments for post-war living using pre-fabricated, industrial and other materials developed during World War II. The Case Study Homes were mostly built in Southern California during an optimistic, challenging and creative era in American architecture.”
— Bernadine Styburski Director, Eames Foundation
