Tilt Up-Slab House (David Hertz)

Tilt-Up Slab House (David Hertz)

2000 by David Hertz

This pre-fabricated “tilt-up” house — constructed of fourteen six-inch thick concrete slabs brought to the site and tilted up into place — was designed to take maximum advantage of its narrow lot while buffering its inhabitants from the immediately adjacent alley. The Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles deems it a “beautiful rendition of the revival of the International Style.”

    Earlier this morning on one of the channels I get here in Mexico City, Mexico I saw the house presentation of Venice. I was in awwwwww. I wish more people had your inspiration, dedication and for-thought of building something so beautiful, energy savy and practical. Bravo.
