Architect Wallace K. Harrison visited New York's Allied Arts Exhibition in 1931, and purchased the Aluminaire House for $1,000. Built of steel and aluminum, it was designed by Albert Frey and A. Lawrence Kocher. He had it dismantled and transported to a 25-acre site he had purchased in Huntington, Long Island, to serve as his weekend home.
Avery Library Drawings and Archives collection has photos and drawings of this house which were used in the recent article titled "Falling for Modern" by Andrea Truppin in Modernism Magazine Spring 2012, v.15, n.1.
