ARCHITECT DESIGNS COTTON HOUSES (Feb, 1933)

ARCHITECT DESIGNS COTTON HOUSES

Houses of cotton are proposed by Lawrence Kocher, noted architect, to solve the low-cost housing problem. Models of two types; a $1,500 five-room home and a week-end house, have been designed. A weatherproof exterior is provided by a roof and walls of fireproofed cotton ducking stretched over a wooden structural frame. Inner walls are also of cotton. Insulating material may be added to exclude heat and cold. Since the canvas is flexible, it is adaptable to any shaped surface.

    Isn’t this what’s commonly referred to as a tent?
