NORTHWEST REGION ARCHITECTURAL MASTERS SUBJECT OF TALK

 

You’re probably familiar with the names Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Pietro Belluschi, but what about Gropius, Saarinen, or Bailey? Chrissy Curran, Associate Deputy of the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office, will explore the rise of modernism and its impact on the built environment in her talk “The Modern Masters - from International Style to Northwest Regional” from 10 – 11:30 a.m., July 21 at the Architectural Heritage Center, 701 SE Grand Ave., Portland.

 

Curran’s introduction to the “masters of modern architecture”, both at home and abroad, will place into historic context the personalities associated with the development of modernism from the late 19th century through the 1960s and help us understand why a relatively small group of architects had such far-reaching influence.
