This monograph provides a complete study of Pierre Koenig's architecture, and illustrates his consistent application of certain design principles and his interest in industrialization, structure and environmentally responsible architecture. Photographs taken by Julius Shulman of Koenig's work, together with the architect's original sketches and drawings, provide a comprehensive visual document of the architecture of this highly respected designer. One of the major figures of the Modern Movement in America, his work provides an unparalleled insight into the evolution of Modernism on the West Coast and the scope of its influence internationally. Koenig is the architect of some of Los Angeles's most admired houses, and a pioneer of what became known as the "Case Study House Programme". In 1950 he was chosen by the magazine "Arts and Architecture" to design two of the highly innovative buildings in this programme. Koenig's case study house #21 and case study house #22 have since become iconic, and capture the excitement of the period and the optimism of the Case Study House Programme as a whole.
