Notes: Of Paul Thiry's own Seattle house (1936), Steinbrueck wrote: "...built in 1936, [it] illustrates the clean, direct approach associated with the International Style, which placed the creative responsibility upon the designer rather than on the past." He called Thiry "one of the pillars of the contemporary movement."
