Building Notes

Lee Howard writing in the Los Angeles Times in 1947 said this about the architect: "Alexander Ban, whose house for Zoltan Korda will be featured in the Home Magazine soon, was born in Hungary and practiced in many parts of the world before coming here. North Africa was his favorite place because of its beauty plus the advantages of civilization. Mr. Ban has just received two first prizes in scientific research competition conducted by an arc welding foundation for new use of steel in residential construction." (See Lee Howard, "Los Angeles Now the Architectural Capital of the World," Los Angeles Times, 12/07/1947, Home Magazine, pp. 8-9.)
