Architecture & Interior Design

This is a photograph of "Hidden Home," designed by Helen Binkerd Young (1877 - 1959), as published in the American Architect in 1927. Young graduated from Cornell's architecture program in 1900 and taught household arts from 1910 until 1921. Drawing heavily upon her architectural training, she encouraged the application of design principles to home planning and furnishing. In this way, she "helped women envision interior design in a larger context."
