Joesph Eichler...

So I guess I am on an architect kick this week...
Joesph Eichler, known for the "California Modern" style built tract style homes in California from 1950 til 1974 and is one of the most influential builders in modern architecture today. Eichler not only built houses that went against the grain but he also sold houses to any race, ethnicity, or religion. His homes are known for glass walls, post-and-beam construction, open floor plans, low slopping or a-framed roofs, vertical siding and atriums (an open-air enclosed entrance foyer designed to further advance the Eichler concept of integrating outdoor and indoor spaces.)
