san francisco modern

Just curious to find out if you ever found your modernist dwelling in Chicago. I just returned from Chicago and had a chance to preview some fab MCM homes on the North Shore / North of the city (as well as the obligatory architectural boat tour in the city).

There is no shortage of fab MCM residential architecture however some of the prices have reached stratospheric proporiton (even by California standards).

Hopefully you have found your modern abode. Good luck!

Yes, we did. Almost exactly a year ago we bought a mid-century modern house in Wilmette, IL. The house needs a lot of remodeling, though. The project is supposed to be chronicled in "The Next Mid Century" blog linked to at right, but we've not been very good about maintaining it lately. Maybe we'll pick it up again.

What Is One-Way Street?

One-Way Street [Einbahnstrasse, 1928] was Walter Benjamin's first effort to break out of the narrow confines of the academy and apply the techniques of literary studies to life as it is currently lived. For Benjamin criticism encompasses the ordinary objects of life, the literary texts of the time, films in current release, and the fleeting concerns of the public sphere. Following Benjamin's lead, this blog is concerned with the political content of the aesthetic and representations of the political in the media. As Benjamin writes in One-Way Street, "He who cannot take sides should keep silent."
