Modern Capital in Chicago; Early Moderns in Bethesda, DC

Marina-IBM in Chicago

I am exploring the modern architecture of Chicago (you can follow posts from the trip on Facebook and Twitter), but have been keeping my eye on activity back home. I found a couple of earlier modern style homes on the market.  Take a look at this 1939 Streamline Modern house in Bethesda with its curved, shiplike form. View a slideshow of the house, which is listed for $995K. Also, check out  this 1942 house in North Cleveland Park listed for $895K. It is open on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
