May 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.
Tickets are non-refundable and all proceeds benefit the programs of Restore Oregon, a non-profit devoted to saving Oregon’s historic places, from the pioneer through modern eras.
This is a self-guided, self-driving tour. A souvenir tour booklet with maps, addresses, descriptions and photos of the houses featured on the tour is provided to tour-goers at the check-in location TBD.
