hi, and sorry for not having more oddball architecture posts this week.
meaning: this last week. i’m in chicago now, headed to nyc tomorrow, then aspen in about 10 days, then back to gigantic dysfunctional byzantine l.a.

right before i left l.a i went to santa monica where a friend of mine showed me this amazing suburban case-study (i think) futuristic mid-century house.
i’m trying to find out more about it.
let’s see.
the john entenza house!
i feel so satisfied when i can actually find out something about one of the houses or buildings i include here.
so yes, it’s the john entenza case study house.
and here’s a link.
and, according to my thorough research (i looked at 2 websites) it’s the house where the whole case study program/idea was launched/started/conceived of.

so it’s historical architecture where historical architecture was conceived. of.

i’m also including a picture of the pacific ocean inspired by sugimoto but not nearly as good. or as big.

ok, hi from chicago.


Arts & Architecture magazine spanned the modern era and was influential in housing, design, layout and thought about living in that era.

An online archive with content from the magazines has been put online here:
