A free form structure of gleaming white concrete stands today on the California State
Polytechnic College campus at San Luis Obispo in testimony to the school's concept of education:
practical training with intensified understanding of technology. The unique, double curved
structure is the accomplishment of two groups of senior students from the classes of 1964 and
1965 of the Department of Architecture and Architectural Engineering, working under the
direction of Professor Wesley S. Ward. The design has demonstrated that steel cable can be used
as form and reinforcement for structures with minimal labor and material.
Also, a sculptured home, whose basic design is so primitive that only the most modern
construction methods and materials could be used to achieve it, is now approaching completion
on Genessee Mountain near Denver, Colorado. Charles Deaton, a Denver architect and owner of
this house, has created its design to resemble nothing in particular, but to be as free as the forms
in nature. This is a piece of "habitable sculpture." Inside the shell, the living room, kitchen, dining
are, three bedrooms and three baths will take shape. Curved wall, round shower stalls, and new
moon shaped closets will replace the conventional angular shapes in most houses. A curved glass
wall will slide back to extend the dining area onto the terrace that is the outer portion of the lower
lip of the shell.
