The Case Study Program began in 1945 by Arts & Architecture Magazine, launching the most iconic architectural movement with a focus in Los Angeles. What makes these houses so absorbing are the limitations at which they were drawn. Each Case Study was built with inexpensive materials, and the durability of its style and relevance speaks volumes of design and the architects behind them.
Case Study #22 designed by Pierre Koening is the most epochal. The views of the city seen through the wall to ceiling glass framing elicits the type of dream life one could have in Los Angeles.
The best part is, several Case Studies are open for public viewing. For tickets, visit Stahl House.
