Between 1945 and 1966, Arts & Architecture magazine published thirty–six designs from its experimental Case Study Houses program, though not all were ultimately built. The aim was not to develop prototype designs for standardized housing, but rather to create modern houses that responded to the challenge of their unique sites. For their own house—Case Study House no. 8—the Eameses used prefabricated building materials that permitted customization of the interiors–by closing or opening different spaces and adding rooms as needed.
