1955 Trigon Chalet

Images of Heidi and Peter Wenger’s 1955 Trigon Chalet, Brig, Switzerland, after renovations in 1976. From A-Frame by Chad Randl.

In a fascinating look at this architectural phenomenon, Chad Randl tells the story of the "triangle" house from prehistoric Japan to its lifestyle-changing heyday in the 1960s. Part architectural history and part cultural exploration, A-Frame documents every aspect of A-frame living using cartoons, ads, high-style and do-it-yourself examples, family snapshots, and even an appendix with a complete set of blueprints in case you want to build your own!
