"In the January 1955 issue of Popular Mechanics Magazine West Coast Editor
Thomas Stimson introduced his newly built steel frame
and lightweight concrete panel 'House of the Future' to his readers
with an open invitation to experience the house through March 1 of that year.

In a clear response to John Entenza's Case Study Program, the
residence celebrated post-war industrial technology, pre-fabricated
wall modules, and was fitted with new conveniences such as an
automatic aluminum garage door."



I tracked down a copy of PM, courtesy of the Google Books project.
