I conducted a “building ethnography” of a 1953 ranch-style house that merges a conventional analysis of the form and history of the building with research. My investigation focused on the process of designing the house in the context of mid-century suburban America, and how the experiences of the inhabitants were shaped by the physical structure of the house while the structure's functions transformed over time.
