Idea House II 1947 Part 2


As promised, here is another article about the Idea House built by the Walker Art Museum, in Minneapolis.  Not all of the photos are in color but I really love the ones that are. The offset printing of the era and the quality of the pigments/colors creates such a beautiful image.  Here, we see some of the detail lost in a type of abstraction resulting from the limitations of a process. The result is a great image.

These images come from a writing about the house in McCall’s Book of Modern Houses (1951).

Check out the Walker’s description of the house here.
