MACHINE-GENERATED SUMMARY NOTE:
"Heralded as the first modern kitchen, the Frankfurt kitchen was designed by Austrian architect Grete Schütte-Lihotzky in 1926 as part of the 'Neues Frankfurt' (New Frankfurt) housing development in the Weimar Republic. Existing academic discourse focuses mainly on the design achievements of the Frankfurt kitchen as a turning point in the history of architecture. Seeking to understand the role of domestic reform in relation to other contributing theories such as socialism and Taylorism; this paper examines the social, theoretical and historical factors that contributed to Grete Schütte-Lihotzky's monumental design. Analyzing the Frankfurt kitchen within the context of domestic reform in Germany and the United States, this paper focuses on the 'Neues Bauen' (New Building) public housing efforts in Germany in the interwar years; the role of women in Weimar Republic society; the policy of redomestication; as well as the impact of the work of American and German domestic reformers. Three case studies provide detailed analysis of the kitchen designs of Catharine Beecher, Christine Frederick and Schütte-Lihotzky. The first two case studies provide examples of influential American domestic reformers while the final case study brings the analysis back to Germany."
