The Aluminaire House


Model of Kocher & Frey’s Aluminaire House, erected at full-scale in the 45th Annual Exhibition of the Architectural League

“The device of the ‘slung’ wall was interestingly demonstrated at the Architectural League show in the Kocher & Frey metal and glass house put up in the Grand Central Palace–a house that conforms throughout to the international style. So after all we see that insurgent elements did succeed in gaining admittance to the major exhibition. As a matter of fact, such elements were repeatedly encountered there, though not frequently enough to prevent one’s feeling that the international style had been virtually ignored. That is a commentary on the sheer size of the Architectural League exhibition.” The New York Times, April 26, 1931
