Pure mid-century wonder …
Case Study House #22, The Stahl House, Architect Pierre Koenig, 1959-1960, Photograph by Julius Shulman.
If you want to see the house in a movie watch Galaxy Quest. If you want to buy an architecture buff a wow Christmas present get the Taschen Case Study Houses: The Complete CSH Program, 1945-1966. In a pinch you can use the outsize volume to build a fort or barricade a doorway.
