In the immediate postwar years, a new type of modern architecture emerges. Beatriz Colomina presents domesticity as a potent new weapon in a changed architectural battlefield. This architecture becomes the property of the middle-class consumer bombarded with images of domestic bliss, a lifestyle campaign launched through recycled military techniques. The significance of architects like Charles and Ray Eames lies in their sensitivity to buildings and images both defining space. Colomina is Director of Princeton University´s Architecture PhD program and acclaimed author of "Privacy and Publicity" and "Sexuality and Space".
