The Power of the Arts & Crafts Movement

The Arts & Crafts movement is defined as a period of time from the late 1890s until the 1920s considered to be a socioligical revolution as opposed to a technological revolution. It was more of a change in the feeling and mood within the country about how industrialized life had become. People were speaking out against the over-industrialized life at this time. 

What impact did this movement have on architecture? Consider the Prairie Style, the Craftstman style, and the Bungalows. 

The country embraced theses new, simple styles without all the false ornamentation, rejecting the previous Victorian Style.

Brent takes us to a house in the historic Fairmont District built by Charles Butcher, an excellent example of an Arts & Crafts style home. He'll take us through the details that embody this style.
