Gregory Ain was born in Pittsburg and raised in California; he went to school at UCLA and USC. He worked briefly for Rudolf Schindler and then worked for three years for Richard Neutra, in the early 1930s. Ain was one of the leading modernist architects in Southern California during the 1940s and 1950s. He built many single-family homes in the Silverlake and Los Feliz areas of Los Angeles. After World War II, Ain focused on building low-cost housing and multi-family units. He partnered with Joseph Johnson and Alfred Day, as well as landscape architect Garrett Eckbo on many of these housing tracts.
