The Stahl House: Case Study House #22: The Making of a Modernist Icon
by Bruce Stahl and Shari Stahl Gronwald with Kim Cross

Talk about growing up modern! The authors still retain their childhood home and have written what’s called a “biography” of the house. The book is replete with little-seen family snapshots, architectural drawings, construction photos, film stills, and fashion shoots, as well as letters, contracts, and other documentation (although the annoying dearth of captions creates a distracting guessing game). Dominating it all—and most people’s perception of Pierre Koenig’s masterpiece—is the Julius Shulman photograph on the cover. Happily, though, this book weaves an inclusive story and shows many more facets of this icon of modernism, and more, that it is simply a family home.

Chronicle Books, 2021, 208 pages, hardcover, $24.95.
