Abstract

This thesis proposes to examine the correlation between the ever-evolving
technologies of the twentieth century and the shifts in spatial distribution in the
residential architecture that may result from their introduction into North American
middle-class homes. I will investigate the cause-and-effect relationship between these
new forms of technological in-home entertainment, their impact on the lifestyles of the
middle-class North American families who consume them, and the resulting demands
reflected in the residential architecture that develops over the course of the century.
