Description

 

The bungalow in its many forms was Portland's most popular house type in the decades leading up to World War II. Neighborhoods all around the city contain clusters of these beautiful yet often modest homes. Bungalows were quite modern for their time, but they were also affordable enough to make home buying a reality for working and middle class Portlanders. 

 

AHC Education Committee member Professor Tom Hubka will explore the exotic and complex sources behind the development and popularity of the common bungalow house. This illustrated talk will include an analysis of the Arts and Crafts Movement and the development of the Craftsman/Bungalow style as well as the role of local builders in creating Portland's most popular form of the bungalow.
