This first monograph on Donald Wexler (1926), the pioneer of prefabricated steel houses, provides a comprehensive view of the golden years of Californian architecture. The extremes of the desert climate forced Wexler to develop a sustainable architecture, which was not only successful functionally, but also achieved a timeless aesthetic appeal. This book includes over 120 color plates and architectural drawings, two essays by curators Lauren Weiss Bricker, professor of architecture at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and much more.
By Donald Wexler, Lauren Weiss Bricker, Sidney Williams, and Bernard Perlin. Paperback. 132 pages.
