Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Wasn't the '70's the worst for everything? Although, the Bicentennial was cool.

If you can offer an honest answer to this poll off the top of your head...What The Hay?...

It’s hard to pin down architectural movements to a decade, as they typically spanned several. The quintessential “70s” house (The Brady house) was built in ’59 and followed mid-century modern design aspects that ranged from the mid 30s to the mid 60s.
There are a lot of mid century modern structures that work well, but I have yet to see a split level that does.

Yeah, film and music were just unbearable in the 70's.

I think you meant to say the 80's.

I believe the 90s were the heyday for the McMansion. Nuff said.

This is exactly what I was thinking. They stopped making real houses around this time.
