User / Michael Locke / Pauline Lowe House, Harwell Hamilton Harris 1934
Michael Locke / 39,189 items
Architect Harwell Hamilton Harris designed the Modernist style house for Pauline Lowe in 1934. The house was Harris' first independent commission. Lowe was a buyer for the Bullock's Wilshire Department store and a friend of the architect. The house was prominently featured in magazines and became controversial the following year when Chicago-based architects Paul Schweikher and Theodore W. Lamb designed a very similar house that won the General Electric Small House Competition. Although Schweikher and Lamb were widely accused of plagiarism, Harris received a significant amount of positive publicity from the incident which greatly helped launch his career.

The Lowe House is located at 596 Punahou Street in Altadena, California. Please do not use this image in any media without my permission. © All rights reserved.
