Raphael Soriano (1907-88) was one of the early Case Study architects working in post-war Los Angeles and a talented advocate of the new building materials and construction techniques developed at the time. A significant member of this informal gang of architects that also included Charles and Ray Eames, Pierre Koenig, Eero Saarinen, Richard Neutra and Craig Ellwood, though not as familiar a name now, Soriano was a major influence on his colleagues and was rediscovered by today's practitioners for his highly innovative use of steel and aluminum and his early interest in low-cost, prefabricated structures. This is the first ever monograph on Soriano, providing a comprehensive study of the architect's life and oeuvre. It includes detailed descriptions of 30 key Soriano buildings, and a list of Complete Works that documents for the first time every known project in Soriano's archive. More than 20 of Soriano's buildings have been destroyed and many others remodelled beyond recognition; this book offers the sole published record of these important works.
