MOST RECENT

The “Life House” by Pietro Belluschi, with executive architects Jones and Emmons built for Joe Eichler, 1958. It was originally conceived in 1947 as a house that could be built for $4,000 for returning GIs. As realized, it was built for $25,000 as part of an Eichler development in the San Mateo hills. #pietrobelluschi #belluschi #lifehouse #lifehousesanmateo #eichler #bayareamodernism #midcenturymodern #midcenturymodernism #jonesandemmons #aquincyjones #eichlerhouse #architecture #modernarchitecture #design

Mitchell Park in Palo Alto by Robert Royston, 1956. A great allée of trees with custom light posts. #robertroyston #mitchellpark #bayareamodernism #landscapemodernism #midcenturymodernism #midcenturymodern #landscapearchitecture #rhaa #rhaalandscape #landscape #allee

Mitchell Park in Palo Alto by Robert Royston, 1956. Most of the original design remains intact. The long wisteria pergola axis remains powerful and provides much needed shade as well as acts as a landmark visible throughout the large park. #robertroyston #mitchellpark #bayareamodernism #landscapemodernism #midcenturymodernism #midcenturymodern #playgrounddesign #landscapearchitecture #rhaa #rhaalandscape #landscape #pergola

Mitchell Park in Palo Alto by Robert Royston, 1956. The fluid forms and organic geometries cast in concrete still look fresh and exciting even after 60 years have passed. #robertroyston #mitchellpark #bayareamodernism #landscapemodernism #midcenturymodernism #playgrounddesign #midcenturymodern #landscapearchitecture #rhaa #rhaalandscape #landscape

PROJECT VISIT:

Stumbled across what is most likely the best Taco Bell building in the world on Saturday while visiting the beach at Pacifica.

The design is quintessentially Bay Area modernist, however I have not been able to track down who designed it. Any help in finding this out would be appreciated!

The exposed super structure, dune like form and mellow weather timber allow this building to sit lightly in its beach front location - although a family run fish and chip shop would be more fitting!

Entry at the X-100 Eichler House in San Mateo by A. Quincy Jones. The house was a prototype using steel for the primary structure. It was designed as a demonstration/marketing house to bring people to this (at the time) tucked away enclave of Eichlers). Pierre Koenig also worked on the project within the offices of Jones & Emmons. #X-100 #eichler #eichlerX-100 #aquincyjones #jonesandemmons #modernism #bayareamodernism #californiamodernism #midcenturymodernism #midcenturymodern #pierrekoenig #steel
