Paul Laszlo (1900-1993): Bomb Shelters
Owning Institution: UC Santa Barbara, Architecture and Design Collection, Art, Design and Architecture Museum
About this CollectionPaul Laszlo was an interior designer and architect in Germany from the early 1920s until emigrating to the United States in 1936. He settled in Los Angeles and built a thriving business of interior design. After WWII, Laszlo worked with clients to design personal underground bomb shelters in the event of nuclear war. His interest in this particular topic might be traced to the loss of many of the buildings he designed in Germany during the War.
