Description
The unbuilt Community Homes project, slated for Reseda, Calif,, included a shopping center, school, parkland, and 16 blocks of homes. Ain partnered with Garrett Eckbo, Simon Eisner, and Reginald D. Johnson to design the housing tract. This housing project was controversial due to its focus on community, the Federal Housing Authority refused to approve the plans because it was to be a racially integrated housing tract, and Ain was investigated by the FBI for possible communist sympathies.
