Abstract

The first ever book to examine the work of ingenious inventor, builder, and architect, Walter S. White (1917-2002). White's designs for the desert cities of the Coachella Valley and the high plateau of Colorado Springs took inspiration from the natural landscape, while proposing new, ecologically sensitive and inexpensive constructions methods.

The book includes essays by students of the Dept. of the History of Art & Architectrure, UC Santa Barbara, and is richly illustrated with numerous color and back white images, most of them never published before.
