Techwood Tour with Laura Benedict (Charles Palmer's granddaughter)

On April 25, 2019, Christina Crawford and Chris Sawula (pictured below) met Laura Benedict, Charles Palmer’s granddaughter, for a walking tour of the one remaining building at the Techwood Homes site. The L-shaped building (currently empty), originally held social and administrative programming for the housing project and two-story units accessed from paired stoops with wrought iron detailing. Small private yards were accessed from the back doors. The building provides an excellent sense of the rich materiality of the architecture and the generous landscaping of the original design, circa 1935-36. Thanks to Laura for being game to tromp around the site, and for the photos!
