Walter S. White (1917-2002) was an ingenious inventor; builder; and architect who was propelled by three major concerns: inexpensive, even do-it-yourself domestic architecture; innovation in construction and materials; and concern for nature and the environment. This first book on White presents an overview of the architect’s career which unfolded in the Southern California desert of the Coachella Valley and the high-plateau of Colorado Springs.
