While the region’s postwar residential architecture is highly celebrated, less recognized are the innovations in construction technology and materials that made such developments possible.  Cal Poly Pomona explores the link between new building techniques and pioneering modern design in several iconic houses, including a technical examination of the thermal performance of these residences—a timely topic for architectural practice today.
