An aspiring modernist finally gets her MCM at age 84

Postby scowsa » Thu May 10, 2012 3:14 pm

A nice NYT article about a woman who ends up living in house designed and built by Allyn Morris, a modernist little known beyond local (Los Angeles) architectural circles. He designed the 1,025-square-foot house as his workplace and bachelor pad. But before its completion in 1958 he had married, and in 1962, his son, Howard, was born, prompting the family to move.

Includes more photos.
