Chicago’s tenement houses were constructed using large, central, sloping roofs.
These tall, narrow roofs were intended to provide insulation from the elements.
These roofs are also known as domed houses and are generally taller than their suburban neighbours.
They are also called tenement apartments.
A few examples are shown in the video below.
The video is a mash-up of a series of articles produced by The Chicago Tribune in the 1920s.
It was created to show the architecture of Chicago’s Tenement Houses and other buildings built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
In the video, The Chicago Sun-Times correspondent, Thomas R. Denniston, explains how Chicago’s houses were built, including the use of domed roofs.
The architecture of the tenement structures is also described.
It is described in great detail.
The architecture of tenement architecture was a highly important part of the Chicago urban planning process in the 19th century.
In Chicago, tenement construction was one of the first large urban projects in the country.
Tenement buildings were originally built by private individuals.
They were used to house private tenants and to provide a means for owners to make a living.
After the First World War, these buildings were purchased by the city, which had plans to rebuild them.
However, the construction of the buildings did not take place.
There was a huge shortage of available land and it was decided that the buildings should be built on private land.
A public outcry against the public housing was sparked in the 1940s by the building of the Sears Tower in Chicago.
Some residents, especially in Chicago’s inner city, protested against the use in housing a high-rise building.
Although the construction was halted, the Tenement House in Chicago was still the focal point of a protest movement.
One of the major issues that emerged from this was the public’s concern over gentrification.
The city tried to use the Tenements to build its own high-rises and other high-density buildings.
When the Tenents were finally demolished in 1954, many of the structures were demolished to make way for new development.
These structures were then re-used as housing for tenants.
Championing Tenement architecture in the 1950s was a political issue for the United States, and Chicago became a hub of anti-gentrification activism.
By the 1970s, many prominent figures in the Chicago Tenement Movement were also elected to office, including former Mayor Richard J. Daley.
Following the demise of the Tenancy House Movement, Chicago has seen many of its Tenement buildings rebuilt and preserved.
