Arts & Architecture 1945-49, Hardback Book

Description

From the end of World War II until the mid-1960s, exciting things were happening in American architecture.

Emerging talents were focusing on innovative projects that integrated at once modern design and low-cost materials.

The trend was most notably embodied in the famous Case Study House Program, a blueprint for modern habitation championed by the era's leading American journal, Arts & Architecture.The complete facsimile of the ambitious and groundbreaking Arts & Architecture was published by TASCHEN in 2008 as a limited edition.

This new curation-directed and produced by Benedikt Taschen-brings together all the covers and the highlights from the first five years of the legendary magazine, with a special focus on the Case Study House Program and its luminary pioneers including Neutra, Schindler, Saarinen, Ellwood, Lautner, Eames, and Koenig.A celebration of the first brave years of a politically, socially and culturally engaged publication, this special selection is also a testimony to one of the most unique and influential events in the history of American architecture.
