An Everyday Modernism: The Houses of William Wurster

William Wilson Wurster (1895-1973) has been widely recognized as the foremost proponent of a distinctive Bay Area architectural style. But his ideas extended far beyond California: In private practice and as head of architecture schools at the University of California at Berkeley and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Wurster shaped an entire generation of architects and city planners.

An Everyday Modernism: The Houses of William Wurster documents Wurster’s fifty-year career and his important place in contemporary American architectural thought. Along with his wife, city planner Catherine Bauer, and landscape architect Thomas Church, Wurster was intimately involved in the rise of modern city planning and landscape design in the United States. In keeping with the social and economic conditions of the late 1930s, Wurster encouraged the development of small houses that offered the livability of those of greater scale, and he influenced the building of affordable mass-produced housing. His designs embodied principles of simplicity and economy, yet incorporated complex human needs. Wurster’s legacy is especially relevant today, as uncertain economic conditions and social dislocations affect housing for Americans at every level.

Wurster stands among the most important architects to practice in the U.S. between the 1930s and the 1950s. The best of his residential designs rank with those of Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, R.M. Schindler, and Bruce Goff as pathbreaking exemplars of American innovation during the decades before and after World War II.
