Cory Buckner's MHA home (nice pics!)...

Postby robbhouston » Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:16 am

Hello again,

There's a great piece on Santa Monica based architect, author and activist Cory Buckner over at dwell.com...

http://www.dwell.com/articles/Mutual-Fulfilment.html

Cory lives in an A. Quincy Jones designed home that was part of the Mutual Housing Association project (1946-1950), better known now as Crestwood Hills. Check out the gallery of her place. It's some of the most vivid contemporary images I've seen of anything from the MHA. Really shows just how futuristic the designs were. As has been mentioned here before, that project was some of Jones' most inspired work.

Enjoy!

PS: Just noticed some of the comments date back to 2009. Sorry if this is old news. Sometimes I accidentally find older articles while searching for pics, etc...and they seem new and exciting (to me).
