The bungalows of Buffalo

F Downing, U Flemming

Received 13 November 1981

Abstract. Measured drawings of seven bungalows that were built between 1914 and 1926 in Buffalo, New York, are presented. The paper concentrates on the conventions which govern the organization of spaces in these bungalows and establish linkages with other house types in the popular tradition. The conventions found are expressed through the schemata of a parametric shape grammar which allow differences between bungalows to be explained as different geometric realizations of a shared set of conventions.
