South Suburban Modernism Tour
Part 1

On October 9, 2005, Chicago Bauhaus and Beyond members enjoyed an exceptional tour planned by our president, Joe Kunkel. We visited seven architecturally significant homes filled with modernist furnishings and art. A cocktail reception was held at the final home designed by Edward Dart, overlooking a beautiful yard and pond. Six out of the seven homes were owned by members of CBB.
