2020— the plague year — got us thinking about optimism; the scarcity of it, the need for it. We dusted off our long-time love of Mid-Century Modern — to us, one of architecture’s more optimistic residential moments. Post-war modernism didn’t encounter a situation or domestic problem that couldn’t be solved by design, often in the most cheery, hipster way. To us, that inherent spirit in modernism is maybe more timely than ever. Innovation will be the way out of many of our problems, and it moved us to revisit forward-looking optimism of Eichler and other like-minded mid-century developers that brought open-plan living and modern materials to a wide consumer audience.
