Rodney Walker was a midcentury modern designer and builder who specialized in residential architecture in the Southern California area. He contributed three designs to Arts & Architecture magazine’s Case Study House program during the late 1940s (Case Study House #16, #17, and #18). Many of his homes were photographed by Julius Shulman for Arts & Architecture magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, Architectural Record, Sunset, and the Los Angeles Times Home magazine.
