Abstract

The 1938 Laguna Beach house designed by William Alexander for adventure writer Richard Halliburton is a landmark of modern architecture. This article explores the relationships between the client's goals, the architect's vision and sources of inspiration, and the construction chal lenges. It also links the house to the current discourse on "queer space" and evaluates the house's influence on contemporary literature.
