Case Study House Series

In 1945, the publisher of Art & Architecture Magazine initiated a project that ran intermittently until 1963 that challenged young architects like Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra and Eero Saarinen to design residential architecture that matched innovative design with affordable construction using commercial building materials. The challenge was in response to the housing boom caused by the GI's returning from World War II. Known as the Case Study House Program, the ongoing project was published in the magazine and later in a series of books. Using this documentation, Ingram has created a series of "Case Study House" paintings. These two-dimensional wall works reflect facades of selected designs using high-gloss metallic paint combined with materials that were innovative at the time including metal, cast concrete, birch plywood, MDF panel, fabric and mirrors.
