    When American architects, designers, and cultural institutions converted wartime strategies to new ends, the aggressive promotion of postwar domestic bliss became another kind of weapon: In the years immediately following World War II, America embraced modern architecture—not as something imported from Europe, but as an entirely new mode of operation, with original and captivating designs made in the USA. In Domesticity at War, Beatriz Colomina shows how postwar American architecture adapted the techniques and materials that were developed for military applications to domestic use. Just as manufacturers were turning wartime industry to peacetime productivity—going from missiles to washing machines—American architects and cultural institutions were, in Buckminster Fuller’s words, turning “weaponry into livingry.”This new form of domesticity itself turned out to be a powerful weapon. Images of American domestic bliss—suburban homes, manicured lawns, kitchen accessories—went around the world as an effective propaganda campaign. Cold War anxieties were masked by endlessly repeated images of a picture-perfect domestic environment. Even the popular conception of the architect became domesticated, changing from that of an austere modernist to a plaid-shirt wearing homebody. Colomina examines, with interlocking case studies and an army of images, the embattled and obsessive domesticity of postwar America. She reports on, among other things, MOMA’s exhibition of a Dymaxion Deployment Unit (DDU), a corrugated steel house suitable for use as a bomb shelter, barracks, or housing; Charles and Ray Eames’s vigorous domestic life and their idea of architecture as a flexible stage for the theatrical spectacle of everyday life; and the American lawn as patriotic site and inalienable right.Domesticity at War itself has a distinctive architecture. Housed within the case are two units: one book of text, and one book of illustrations—most of them in color, including advertisements, newspaper and magazine articles, and many architectural photographs

    Originally published as a magazine by The Portola Institute starting in 1970 and intended for teachers and parents and subtitled ‘Resources for Our Education’, Big Rock Candy Mountain billed itself as “A Learning to Learn Catalog”, directly inspired by the Whole Earth Catalog. It shared the same publisher and borrowed its format, but featured more in-depth articles .Like the Whole Earth Catalog, its content is divided into sections, among them ‘Process Learning’, ‘Educational Environments’, and ‘Self Discovery’, each one listing books, educational tools and other products, along with details of their availability (some of them, unlike the Whole Earth Catalog, were sold directly by BRCM mail order. The nonprofit Portola Institute was founded in Menlo Park in 1966 by Dick Raymond, Bob Albrecht and others as an educational forum and helped develop a number of influential Bay Area organisations and publications, including Albrecht’s People’s Computer Company, the Whole Earth Catalog and Big Rock Candy Mountain
