About

Case Study House #21, Bailey House, 1960 Pierre Koenig Architect Chromogenic color print 20 x 16 inches Built in the hills with south views, this Case Study House #21 is surrounded by pools and brick terraces. The house, built in 1958 is also known as the Bailey House and was designed by Pierre Koening. The Bailey house is located at 9036 Wonderland Park Avenue in Los Angeles. This 2 bedroom house was designed to have water pumped from the pool to the roof gutter and then return to the pool using hydraulics to aerate the pool. The house was built using a series of 10 x 22 foot bays, 9 feet high composed of an 8 in I Beam. Chromogenic Color Print. Shulman's stamp on recto. Signature stamped by Julius Shulman in his Hollywood Hills studio. Mr. Shulman was part of a postwar generation of commercial architecture photographers who specialized in Modernist buildings, working on assignment for architects and mass-market magazines like Life, House & Garden and Good Housekeeping as well as architecture publications. Among his peers were Ezra Stoller in New York and the Chicago firm of Hedrich Blessing. Over a career of more than half a century, Mr. Shulman almost always used black-and-white film, the better to reduce his subjects to their geometric essentials. But he was also able to make the hard glass and steel surfaces of postwar Modernist architecture appear comfortable and inviting. Working mostly in California, Mr. Shulman staged his photographs as tableaus to promote the idea of casual living in a Modernist context. Carefully composed and artfully lighted, his images promoted not only new approaches to home design but also the ideal of idyllic California living — a sunny, suburban lifestyle played out in sleek, spacious, low-slung homes featuring ample glass, pools and patios.
