The Case Study Houses program commissioned a team of renowned architects to design 36 prototype residences that emphasized functionality and affordability for postwar living. Some of the world’s most prominent mid-century modern architects participated in the program, including Richard Neutra, Pierre Koenig, and Charles and Ray Eames

The architects’ designs ended up shaping modernist architecture as we know it today, introducing features like open floor plans and indoor-outdoor living spaces that ease the flow of everyday living. Being tasked with maximizing affordability, the architects also used then-unconventional building materials, such as cement blocks, industrial glass, and plywood, all of which would

Los Angeles just got a whole lot cooler thanks to architect David Adjaye’s recent project. Fashion retailer The Webster, well known for its Art Deco-style flagship store in South Beach, commissioned the British-Ghanian architect to design its new 11,000-square-foot space in LA. Forming the foundation of the Beverly Center, the design is nothing short of stunning.

The structure is comprised of bubble-gum pink concrete, which offers a compelling juxtaposition with the brutalist building it sits underneath. Of the uniquely pink structure Adjaye told Dezeen, “In the past five years I’ve started to work with a lot of saturated red and pink hues, which extends back to the early color experiments I did at the

Among the biggest e-commerce trends to hit the market in recent years are direct-to-consumer brands. If you’re not familiar with the term, a direct-to-consumer brand is just a fancy way of saying that the brand sells items without using a retailer, like a department store or boutique, as a middleman.

The advantage of this sales model for consumers like us is that it means products are typically cheaper without sacrificing quality. Retailers often mark up the items they sell to make a better profit, but because direct-to-consumer brands don’t use retailers, you can avoid those mark-ups and receive a better deal.

All of that being said, there are now quite a few awesome direct-to-consumer home brands that you can take advantage of to elevate your

Prefabricated homes have long added affordability and convenience to the architectural landscape of the U.S., allowing residents to live virtually anywhere for a fraction of the price of a traditional house. In addition to being convenient and affordable, prefab homes also have the potential to be among the most environmentally-friendly on the market--just ask Mexico City-based firm STUDIOROCA. 

STUDIOROCA is taking prefab homes to new, more sustainable heights with its prefabricated housing system dubbed VMD (Vivienda Minima de Descanso). Developed by architects Rodrigo Alegre and Carlos Acosta, VMD homes are designed to have a small ecological footprint and far more customization options than typical prefab homes.
