Modern in the Middle: Chicago Houses 1929-1975 is the first book to examine the classic twentieth-century houses that defined American Midwestern Modernism. Famed as the birthplace of the skyscraper, Chicago also cultivated a more humble but no less consequential form of modernism—the private residence.
Please join one of the book’s authors Susan Benjamin, historic preservationist and published architectural historian, for a presentation about the book.
