Walking Tour: Mid-Century Modern and Minimalism in Portland

Friday, April 12, 11:00 a.m.

Mid-century Modern and Minimalism in Portland: until the middle of the twentieth century Portland architecture was firmly within the mainstream of American design. That changed with the emergence of Pietro Belluschi, John Yeon, and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill as Portland leapt to the forefront of international architectural design. This walk will survey this important and under appreciated aspect of our city. Contact event organizer directly for information on student, senior, group, or multiple ticket purchase discounts.
