Case Study Houses is a compact guide including all of the Case Study Houses from the Case Study House programme (1945–1966)- a unique event in the history of American architecture. Responding to the Post-War Building Boom, the programme commissioned major architects of the day to create prototype homes that could be both easily replicated and readily affordable to the average American.

Architects including Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen and A. Quincy Jones, created 36 prototypes using war born techniques and materials best suited to life in the modern world. This book features all of these prototypes, with over 150 photos, plans, and maps included, as well as an introduction into each architects life and major works. For design lovers or aspiring architects it's a great idea for a gift.
