More About Modern Tract Homes of Los Angeles by John Eng
 
 
 
Overview
Affordable housing for the masses has been an age-old problem that some of the best minds in the world have tried to solve. Never was it more critical than after World War II, when many cities and economies were wiped clean and the world-quite literally-needed to be rebuilt. It was during this time that modern ideas led the way to the future. Modern Tract Homes of Los Angeles touches on the history of modern architecture and explores five housing tracts built between 1948 and 1964. Through these unique tracts, we gain an understanding of what the postwar climate was like and learn why modern houses still remain relevant today as new homeowners are drawn to their aesthetic and original homeowners continue to enjoy them more than half a century later. This engaging guide features 100+ images of interiors, exteriors, and decor and more than 40 archival images and floor plans.
