Homes by Decade Project

In 2012, DenverUrbanism’s Ken Schroeppel launched an ambitious project to document the geographical and architectural attributes of Denver’s 128,000-plus single-family detached homes—decade by decade. His collaboration with local urban photographer and armchair-architect Mark Zakrzewski resulted in a 15-post series featuring over 30 maps, a variety of special exhibits and commentaries, and over 200 photographs illuminating the rich diversity of Denver’s historic and contemporary housing stock. For information on the project methodology and additional background information, please be sure to read the series Introduction in the 1870s post.
