Mid Century Modern holiday houses

Vacation Home by Henrik Bull (illustration by Bob Wandesforde)
Three Stage Beach Cabin (no architect listed)
Two Stage Expandable vacationer, by Walter Wiedmeyer

These images came from a promotional booklet from the Douglas Fir Plywood Association for 18 holiday houses built with fir plywood by various modern architects.
I love the illustrations as well as the designs. Ah.. I wish I could present drawings like these to my architecture clients! They are so much more beautiful and expressive than any flashy 3D CAD perspective I've seen!

Oh my God these are so great! I have a Douglas Fir booklet from the same era on building your own "Recreation Room"- totally agree with you about the illustrations.

These are really very great and of my interest for art. You have explained all things here very well. I like it and thanks for sharing.
