Interesting to see the post WW2 attempt at modern, low cost and easily mass produced architecture, which at the same time managed to fulfill its brief, as well as being high quality and quiet advanced for its time. The book chronicles the case study house program of the Arts & Architecture magazine, kicking off in 1945, running all the way to 1966.
Each of the case study houses has at least one picture (or drawing, in case it was never actually built) of it, together with a basic description (i.e. concept, materials used), with most of them also coming with a floor plan and some with quite comprehensive pictures of both the interiors and exteriors.
One of the points I would also have liked to see covered is a short chapter, either in the introduction, or as additional material next to the case study house description, in what way and to what extent the designs were influential for fulfilling the original brief - namely to provide ideas for affordable, modern and comfortable living.
While the houses would not look particularly out of place today, the cars parked next to them in the pictures should have looked out of date even then. Shows how comparatively little effort went into car design at the time - the only thing that would have looked contemporary would have been a Citroen DS.
