The 2017 Mid-Century Modern William Fletcher House Tour

Sep 23, 2017 – Restore Oregon will present the Mid-Century Modern William Fletcher Tour. A founding member of the Portland architectural firm FFA (Fletcher Farr Ayotte), William Fletcher’s work was inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and the international style of architecture, but was also influenced by Oregon’s NW Regional Modernism which was flourishing at that time. The resulting homes are both modern and appropriate for the landscape. Scroll down for more information.

In addition to celebrating Mid-Century architecture, the goal for our tour is to draw attention to the need for thoughtful preservation of Modern architecture. Homes on the tour may have been lovingly restored, but there are so many more Modern buildings whose historic significance remains unrecognized, and are very much in need of stewardship.

      Glad to hear it! You might consider joining as members. You’ll save $20 off two tickets, get early access to the tickets and this year we’re planning a Members-Only after party with one of our sponsors. Whatever you decide, it’s going to be a very cool tour – we just confirmed another awesome house this past weekend.
