Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Powell (Bungalow Kitchens) here provides an overview of the popular bungalow home style in the early 20th century. Using photographs of homes located throughout the United States and Canada, she describes how the style became suited to the lifestyles of the time when people were moving to the suburbs to enjoy the clean air and healthy living. Bungalows are depicted in Prairie and Shingle styles as well as the more ornate Queen Anne and Spanish Mission styles. Although it features a breezy writing style, this is a serious study that concludes with a plea for the preservation and appreciation of the craftsmanship and care that went into building these homes. In their compact book, Makinson (Greene & Greene: Architecture as a Fine Art) and Heinz give an overview of the work of Charles and Henry Greene and examine the elements of the houses that put the brothers at the center of the California Arts & Crafts movement, discussing in detail their use of wood, stone, and decorative arts. Both books are recommended for public and academic collections where there is an interest. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Read an Excerpt

Architecture isn't simple. Any given house represents the convergence of plan or type (how the house is arranged-types include four-square, I-house, shotgun, hall-and-parlor, etc.), time period (for instance, Victorian is a time period, not a type of house), and decorative style (the shape of the box and the stuff that's on it and in it-a house of the Victorian time period might be Italianate, Second Empire, or Queen Anne in style). Complicated enough for most things. But bungalows add a fourth dimension and that is philosophy. Although bungalows have an informal plan, are of a certain time period, and come in different styles (Craftsman, California, Japanesque, Swiss Chalet, Prairie, Rustic, and so forth), they are also based on a philosophy that is the foundation for how they were built and furnished, how people expected to live in them, and how the residents related to the larger society.
