Living Modern:
A Biography of Greenwood Common

Waverly B. Lowell

Architect William Wurster envisioned Berkeley's Greenwood Common as a development that combined an idealistic sense of community with a modernist aesthetic. Living Modern documents the eight distinct homes designed between 1952 and 1957, along with four gardens designed by Lawrence Halprin and captures what became the mid-century ideal of outdoor living.
