Double-Hung Wooden Window Case Studies: Replacement and New Traditional Construction

Stuart Cohen is a practicing architect, a fellow of the American Institute of Architects, an educator, and an architectural historian. A graduate of Cornell University where he studied with Colin Rowe, he is currently professor emeritus at the University of Illinois, Chicago and the author of four books on the history of Chicago architecture, most recently, Inventing the New American House: Howard Van Doren Shaw Architect, published by Monacelli Press. This book was reviewed in Clem Labine’s Period Homes in 2015. His seminal essay in 1974 for the journal, Oppositions, introduced the term “contexualism” into architectural discourse. His architectural work has been widely published and has been included in the architecture section of the Venice Biennale. The residential work of his firm was the subject of a 2009 monograph, Transforming the Traditional: The Work of Cohen & Hacker Architects. Cohen & Hacker’s houses are published frequently in shelter magazines and have been featured on HGTV.
