Arts & Architecture
Arts & Architecture was first published in 1929 as California Arts & Architecture, later dropping “California” from its title in 1944. The publication became very influential in drawing attention to American architecture and design and many emerging architects on a grand scale. The magazine’s Case Study House Program published experiments in residential architecture, many of which were actually built. Its covers were frequently influenced by Dada and Surrealism, especially during the 1940s and 1950s, and its interior pages presented readers, many of which were not industry professionals, with projects without critical analysis, satisfied to expose them to good, contemporary design and to allow them to form their own conclusions. John Entenza published and edited the magazine from 1938 until 1962, when David Travers succeeded him. Over the years, the work of many famous architects and designers appeared in the magazine, such as Eero Saarinen, Richard Neutra, and Charles & Ray Eames; additionally, Frank Gehry and Richard Meier debuted in the magazine. It ceased publication in 1967.
