Talk on Belluschi House Restoration

In conjunction with the Mid-Century Modern Home Tour, Restore Oregon and DoCoMoMo-Oregon are presenting Radical Restoration: Saving the Houses of Pietro Belluschi and Frank Lloyd Wright on
May 11, 2014.

Excerpt from an article in the Lake Oswego Review, April 10, 2014.

Six Portland area homes designed by internationally acclaimed architect Pietro Belluschi will be open during Restore Oregon's annual Mid-Century Modern Home Tour May 10.

Curated by Belluschi's son, Anthony, also an accomplished architect, the tour represents the first opportunity for Belluschi fans to step inside such a collection of his residential work. Homes on tour span several decades and include the Burkes-Belluschi House where Pietro Belluschi lived until his passing in 1994, and which recently received a DeMuro Award for outstanding restoration.

In addition, DoCoMoMo-Oregon (the International Committee for the Documentation and Conservation of Buildings, Sites and Neighborhoods of the Modern Movement) is planning a companion event, Radical Restoration: Saving the Houses of Pietro Belluschi and Frank Lloyd Wright from 2 to 4 p.m. May 11 on the campus of Marylhurst University.

Marylhurst's new Belluschi Pavilion is almost complete, representing the successful reconstruction of a mid-century home that was meticulously de-constructed and stored before finding its new home. The two-hour program will include presentations from panelists related to both houses and will include ample time for questions and answers.

Tickets to the tour are $45 and tickets to the companion event are $10. All can be purchased online at RestoreOregon.org or by calling 503.243.1923.
