Architecture Students Survey Schweikher House

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

Designed by Paul Schweikher in 1937, a residence and studio in Schaumburg, Illinois, on the National Register of Historic Places will be documented by graduate students in architecture for the Historic American Buildings Survey. In a seminar led by Paul Kapp, students will prepare drawings, take field notes and photographs, and complete the National Park Service's process for documenting structures. Their work will be funded by the the Historic Preservation Education Foundation and archived at the Library of Congress. Made of wood, brick, and glass, the Schweikher House shows influences of Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie style, Japanese traditional forms, and European architecture of the 1930s.
