Chicago's updated 1936 'Day After Tomorrow' House, a first in solar use and energy efficiency.
This glass-and-steel structure on a hill in Lake Forest is one of George Keck’s early solar homes. Inspired by his radical “House of Tomorrow,” which debuted at the 1933 World’s Fair Chicago Century of Progress Exposition, this sequel – “The House of the Day After Tomorrow” – was commissioned by B.J. Cahn and built in 1936.
