Case Study Houses were experiments in American residential architecture sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine, which commissioned major architects of the day to design and build inexpensive and efficient model homes for the United States residential housing boom caused by the end of World War II and the return of millions of soldiers. The program ran from 1945 until 1966. The first six houses were built by 1948 and attracted more than 350,000 visitors. Most of those that were constructed were built in Los Angeles. Bottom line. these are cool houses, man.
