A new architectural style was sweeping San Diego and the rest of the nation after WWII. It was called Mid-Century Modern. The new style called for simple lines, exposed beams, open floor plans, floor to ceiling windows, and much more. It was a break from tradition and it's making a comeback. Find out how San Diegans are now restoring homes from the 1940s through 1970s.
