Robert Bruegmann, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Art History, Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Thomas Leslie, AIA, Pickard Chilton Professor of Architecture at Iowa State University, will present their research on the interplay between innovative technologies, and the cost of materials, utilities, and land affect the design of buildings and consumer products in Chicago during the interwar period. They will focus on the period from 1925 to 1938, when a homegrown modernism developed before the arrival in Chicago of the Bauhaus designers circa 1938. How did product design become established as a discipline through the growth of mass market consumer items designed, manufactured, and distributed from Chicago in this period? How did changes in building and zoning codes during the period affect the forms of buildings?
