American Architecture

The image I have chosen is an architectural drawing of a theatre in Chicago during the 1930s. Theatres during this period were extremely popular as they were one of the key forms of entertainment for the American people. These theatres were constructed as iconic buildings which brought culture to cities all across nation. America has always been a country where big is seen as better, the buildings that architectures had created were of grand design, this relates to Adams theory of the American Dream where the lives of individuals could be improved through technological advancements. American citizens could live happier and richer lives due to more modern forms of entertainment and more opportunities being created. The theatres and other buildings developed improved infrastructure and allowed American citizens to have a sense of national pride. It would also give America hope as new inventions and new technologies would continue to be introduced.
