Arts & Architecture


Arts & Architecture

"Arts & Architecture" (1938-1967) was an American architecture magazine. It was published and edited by John Entenza until 1962, when he left to direct the Graham Foundation and the magazine was taken over by David Travers. "Arts & Architecture" played a significant role both in Los Angeles's cultural history and in the development of American modernism in general.fact|date=June 2007 Among the magazine's most significant cultural contributions was its sponsorship of the Case Study Houses.

"Arts & Architecture" was the first American magazine to popularize the work of Hans Hofmann, Craig Ellwood, Raphael Soriano, Margaret DePatta, George Nakashima, Bernard Rosenthal, Charles Eames, Konrad Wachsmann, Frank Gehry, Hans Hollein and many others. It also embodied the highest standard of graphic design attained by an American art magazine of its time, employing the talents of such designers as Alvin Lustig, Herbert Matter, and John Follis. The magazine featured articles by writers such as architectural historian Esther McCoy, Edgar Kaufmann, Walter Gropius, Lewis Mumford and many more deeply involved in the modern movement.

Book publisher TASCHEN is preparing republication of all issues of the monthly magazine from 1945 to 1967 with an introduction by David Travers. Publication is scheduled for the Spring of 2008.
