Architect Wallace Neff developed Airform construction as a solution to the global housing crisis in 1941—imagine a house constructed in less than forty-eight hours, without using lumber or nails, that is more resistant to fire, earthquakes, and hurricanes than any traditionally built structure. These dome-shaped "bubble houses" were made of reinforced concrete and cast in position over an inflatable balloon. No Nails, No Lumber (DECEMBER 15), by author Jeffrey Head, shows the beauty and versatility of Neff 's design through new and vintage photography, previously unpublished illustrations, archival material, and ephemera.
