The Old Apartment
We lived in Chicago for a year when I was doing my MA, right around the corner from the terrific Museum of Science and Industry. Michelle Kaufmann, whose designs we really love but were not available on the East Coast when we began this odyssey, is building one of her houses on the grounds of the museum. We were lucky enough to hear her talk at the National Building Museum colloquium last year, and to walk through the Glidehouse that was part of the NBM's exhibit on green homes, and if you're gonna be in Chicago anytime this spring you should definitely check it out.
