History Of The Chicago Bungalow

A new exhibition at the Chicago Architecture Foundation traces the fascinating history of Chicago's bungalow.

"[Chicago] is packed with dazzling skyscrapers and drop-dead houses by the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan. Against that gem-studded backdrop, the bungalow -- solid but squat, affordable but hardly elegant -- seems like a dime-store bauble...[Yet] the bungalow is a kind of Rosetta Stone that reveals how new technologies changed the American home -- and the life of the American homemaker -- in the 1920s."
