Belluschi Pavilion Opens to Public

Excerpt from an article in The Lake Oswego Review,
September 26, 2013.

After more than a year of painstaking reconstruction, the small but historically significant home designed by noted Portland architect Pietro Belluschi and donated to Marylhurst University will open this weekend.

The 911-square-foot, mid-century-modern home — donated to the university by Tim Mather, a local Belluschi enthusiast — was designed for a Lake Oswego couple in 1951. It is believed to be one of only a few Belluschi-designed residences that remains unaltered, and the only one of its kind in Lake Oswego.

"This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the completion of a project that has lasting historic and artistic value to our community," said Lynn Andrews, Marylhurst's vice president for university advancement, who oversaw fundraising for the project. "We're thrilled to provide this resource that will be a living learning environment for our students and the broader community. And we are especially grateful to the many individuals, businesses and foundations who donated their time and resources to make one of Pietro Belluschi's architectural gems shine again."

Major contributions of money, materials and services to complete the restoration project came from the Kinsman Foundation, Belluschi family members, Marylhurst trustees, The Bank of Oswego and Coffman Excavation, among many others.
