This is for Engl 394. College. I chose this subject because it is a style I favor and has some researchable facts. The assignment was to argue the superiority of an art form. (My instructor is less concerned with what I argue for, he's looking for my arguement.) I am not an Art student. I do know houses, having lived in several and remodeled a few during my life. I'm taking the stance that the Craftsman Style popular in the early 1900's is the superior housing style for middle income families. (1)It is superior in design, affording elegant surroundings to ecelectic furnishings. (2)The style affords the owner to customize according to personal tastes more readily than others. (3)The size of these homes are the most sensible and adaptable from beginning families to the retired persons. (4) Craftsman Style homes are designed to be a part of the family, not just where the family lives. (this one is the tricky point) I really need some insight into this, I thought I knew enough to make this arguement, I don't. Thanks for the help!
