The best years of our lives
How Arts and Architecture paved the way in post-war construction and culture
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.
