— G. Fred Keck —

An International style structure built for Edward Morehouse, a Public Service Commission official, this residence was designed by Chicago architect George Fred Keck. The style developed in Europe in the 1920's and 1930's and was brought to Chicago by leaders of the German Bauhaus, Mies van der Rohe and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, who had significant influence on Keck's work.
