A topflight American architect, Carl Koch, in his "biography in art," At Home With Tomorrow describes his personal quest for the "good, the beautiful, and the inexpensive," in housing today.
How can the would-be homeowner know what is the best buy for him, and how can he get it?
Why is one-third of our population- and this figure does not include those who buy new and badly built houses- ill housed?
Why are eighty-five percent of the houses in this country being built without architectural supervision?
What compromises can the home buyers and the architects of today make between the need for practicality and employment of mass-production techniques, and the desire for beauty of design?
In no sense, a "how to" book, At Home With Tomorrow defines what a man wants and needs in his house. It tells a woman how her desire for a beautiful home can be combined with her practical requirements.
More than this, Carl Koch discusses his own career as a progressive architect with definite ideas about the relationship of housing to society- and he sees the needs of American society for comfortable, beautiful, and more housing at the least possible cost- from his early experiments in "modern" houses : the Lustron house, the Acorn, the Techbuilt house, to his work today. He points out that the best housing of the future will, because it must, use all the facilities of mass production without sacrificing beauty.
