This is a real gem - one of my favorites. There's an article in it [unsigned!] calling for more architectural study/perfection of the [temporary/mobile] architecture of the migrant worker. i wonder if it is unsigned to try and avoid the backlash 'socialists'/'communists' were beginning to feel at that time? one of the best american magazines ever - both for content and design imho.

    was the school in pict#4 ever built anywhere? LUV THE STYLE! Spot-on attitude to teaching. I can see why this would be one of your favs.

    Schindler and Neutra are architects quite familiar to me, coming from the Los Angeles area. Rudolph Schindler built a beautiful home in South Pasadena, my home town in 1928, which was WAY ahead of its time, and is a historic landmark.I love your wonderful magazine!

    Neutra's Ring School was built, but not until 1960 when the times had caught up with his progressive designs a bit. It's now known as Richard J. Neutra Elementary School, located at Lemoore Naval Air Station near Fresno. Unfortunately, R. M. Schindler's amazing Wolfe House on Catalina Island was demolished in 2002.
