California Modernism (<modern North American architecture styles and movements>, modern North American, ... Styles and Periods (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Used to describe the modernist movement in architecture as it evolved in California, specifically Los Angeles and the area surrounding it, from the 1930s through the 1960s. Hallmarks of this style are attention to indoor-outdoor living, open plans, rectilinear structures often constructed with steel frames, and extensive use of glass. The term is most often used to refer to the Case Study House Program initiated by John Entenza in 1945, and to modernist residential structures in general. Architects associated with the style are Richard Neutra, Rudolf Schindler, Charles and Ray Eames, Gordon Drake, Albert Frey, John Lautner, Pierre Koenig, and Rafael Soriano. Public perception of this movement is commonly attributed to the photographs of Julius Shulman, as published in architectural and interior design magazines during the 1950s.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Te gebruiken voor het beschrijven van de modernistische beweging in de architectuur die vanaf de jaren 30 tot en met de jaren 60 van de 20ste eeuw tot ontwikkeling kwam in Californië, met name in Los Angeles en het gebied daaromheen. Typische kenmerken van deze stijl zijn de aandacht voor het leven binnen en buiten, kantoortuinen, rechtlijnige structuren, vaak met stalen constructies, en een veelvuldig gebruik van glas. De term wordt meestal gebruikt als verwijzing naar het Case Study House Program, een initiatief van John Entenza uit 1945, en naar modernistische woningbouw in het algemeen. Architecten die met deze stijl worden geassocieerd zijn Richard Neutra, Rudolf Schindler, Charles en Ray Eames, Gordon Drake, Albert Frey, John Lautner, Pierre Koenig en Rafael Soriano. De publieke bekendheid van deze stroming wordt doorgaans toegeschreven aan de foto's van Julius Shulman, die in de jaren 50 van de 20ste eeuw in tijdschriften voor architectuur en binnenhuisarchitectuur werden gepubliceerd.
