Mid-Century Modern Home Tour
The annual Mid-Century Modern Home Tour raises awareness of modernism as a historic architectural style.
Modernism released us from the constraints of everything that had gone before with a euphoric sense of freedom. – Arthur Erickson
This is a self-guided, self-driving tour. Directions, maps and addresses are provided to tour-goers. Each year we have homes with challenging locations and due to this, the tour is not recommended for those who cannot navigate stairs or slopes.
The 2014 Tour
Six Portland area homes designed by Pietro Belluschi were open during Restore Oregon’s annual Mid-Century Modern Home Tour on May 10th, 2014. Curated by Belluschi’s son, Anthony, who is himself an accomplished architect, the tour presented the first opportunity for Belluschi fans to step inside such a collection of his residential work. Homes on tour span several decades and included the Burkes-Belluschi House where Pietro lived until his passing in 1994. “In addition to celebrating the work of a master, the goal for our tour is to draw attention to the need for thoughtful preservation of Modern architecture,” says Restore Oregon’s Executive Director, Peggy Moretti. “Many of the homes on our tour 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.”
