It’s been aptly said that “Modern is Historic” and one of the best examples of modern residential architecture was among the projects honored at the first annual DeMuro Awards in November. As Janet Eastman’s column in the Oregonian describes, the Burkes-Belluschi House, designed by the acclaimed architect Pietro Belluschi and where he lived out his later years, is a gem that was masterfully restored and expanded by his son, Anthony, also an architect.
We at Restore Oregon have been thrilled to have Tony and his wife Marti join the organization and curate the selection of six Belluschi homes for our 2014 Mid-Century Modern Home Tour on Saturday, May 10th. Preceding the tour, Anthony will present a talk on his father’s career Friday evening, May 9th, at the Portland Art Museum – also a Belluschi design!
Both the talk and tour are expected to sell out. Restore Oregon members will have early access to tickets. Pre-sales begin on February 17th.
