Description

Texte du rabat

Architecture in the Family Way explores the relationship between domestic architecture, health reform, and feminism in late nineteenth-century England. Annmarie Adams examines the changing perceptions about the English middle-class house from 1870 to 1900, highlighting how attitudes toward health, women, home life, and even politics were played out in architecture.



Résumé
Sheds light on an ambiguous period in the histories of architecture, medicine, and women, revealing it to be a time of turmoil, not of progress and reform as is often assumed. The author argues that the many significant changes seen in this period were due not to architects' efforts but to the work of feminists and health reformers.

Contenu

The International Health Exhibition of 1884; doctors and architects; female regulation of the healthy home; childbirth at home; domestic architecture and Victorian feminism.
