The heyday of style began in the first half of the twentieth century in New York, where free artists set up their homes and workshops in abandoned office and industrial buildings. There was no repair in these areas, so the rent was low. Later the premises were estimated by the American elite, as a result of which such housing became inaccessible to ordinary people.
