C.—A slynl- ficani dcvcloiuiient Is now under way that « r lll create favorable impetus to the .small-home marliel, according lo R, H. Shrove, or New York, chairman of the rom- initlce on Housing of Hie Amcrl scan Institute of Architects. The ins'.iliite has recognized the necessity of tlie architect entcrim the low-pvlcecl-honuf field and, in ;>'.'der to make their services rivall- •hble for i:ie ttnall-hotne builder .bureaus have been established , in •various cities under ils auspices. -Where or«iinl"C<l, these bureaus, comprising Institute members, will furnish working drawings anil tpicificatioiis, together with sup- ciiMon. at n very nominal sum \vell within Ihe means of the : prospective home owner. This does not mean that liome styles nml designs lire to be regimented, but higher staudimls ol design \vlll result from this arrangement .through the service ot experienced , architects whose memberships In Ihe institute lire Indicative of their 'Qualifications. 11 if Market "Manufacturers are keenly alive." ,hi> continued, "to the possibilities :open to them In the .small-home field, and they' are pointing To • production of materials for small Jiomes and nre concentrating -on tlie .importance of design in materials They have realized that ll.cie Lsi a greater market, today for materials that arc architecturally acceptable, runl In (his movement the manufacturers arc turning to architects so that proper design may be developed as a selling point. Here again Ihe f.ichilecl is exerting a marked Influence." Discussing the influence Unit tlie architect is exerting on Rmiill- homc construction from (lie slaiul- ponit of Ihc home buyer, Mr. .Shrevo said: Architects Alii The value nf Ihe architect's knowledge of the esthetic qualities of 'design are valuable to the home purchaser, as this knowledge definitely increases Ihc intrinsic ^ahie of any structure, larj>e 01 s:iiiilt. .Use of the services ot an architect creates a condition also in which Ihc owner has a desire lo inaintain and keep his property ft'hich auloiniUically enhances Its value as a inortganc risk or from Ihe resale standpoint. It is only natural that the owner is proud ol a beauliful home and is casually indifferent lo an URly one. It cannot be too strongly stressed that it costs no more to build a home of charm and beauty than it does to build an unsightly dwelling. In fact, the more at- Iractivc house frequently costs Icii Proportions and massing of areas, a problem best solved by the qualified architect, will create the economic result ami esthetic qualities that arc lost in poorly planned house, and costs no more. "It is my opinion that o«o ol tlie greatest contributions that the Federal 'Housing Administration's program has made to the general recovery of the country has been its efforts to demonstrate the value of the architect to the general public; We have for years been educated to the necessity of medical aid when 111. It is only now thnt we are fully waking to the ecmal necessity of the housing doctor. And, as a result, thou- sr.nds cf home buyers :ind builders are realizing tint a few hundred dollars Invested in architectural brains and ability is the soundest type of investment." _^^:....-^*>y>v,• j'vsj-' ( -f rectangular plan, vli'n hummed!-' \V-illhrmrrlc Tan Un Puf ate partitions so placed as to „!. , " UllOOardS Can 13C nit .s;;imlnKi lefiRih.s of lumber to ] be uv-d v.iiii a minimum of extra ui- II f P P n I [1 r n i (ra " >m s i«luce» \\asl? to u mlni- I! r 11 HI n r i!
