About this artwork

Although experimentation with concrete for domestic construction dates back to the 1860s, it was not until the first half of the 20th century that concrete became an integral part of the language of modern architecture. Designed by architect Bruce Goff during his brief employment with Chicago sculptor Alfonso Iannelli, the Dunglinson House seems to have been a prototype of sorts, using precast concrete blocks to establish a rigorous geometric plan in the modern style. This house recalls some of Goff’s gridded experimental work, as well as the kind of angular abstraction of Iannelli’s best sculptures and reliefs in concrete.
