Description
Whether you are the steward of a mid-century modern home, or simply appreciate the thoughtful design aesthetic of the mid-century era, Oregon Made will inspire a deeper understanding of Pacific Northwest Modernism by introducing you to the architects behind the movement and the principles that guided their work. As Oregon's only statewide historic preservation nonprofit, Restore Oregon has delighted and inspired mid-century modern audiences for over 10 years via their celebrated annual MCM Design Series and Home Tour, which offers both a deep dive into the work of Oregon's mid-century modern masters, and visits to carefully-curated homes which embody the very best of Pacific Northwest modern design. With the publication of Oregon Made, Restore Oregon has assembled a decade of tour highlights all in one place, including in-depth descriptions of more than twenty homes designed by renowned architects such as Pietro Belluschi, John Yeon, Robert Rummer, Saul Zaik, John Storrs and more! Chock full of interior and exterior photos (both period and contemporary) plus a forward by Anthony and Marti Belluschi, and insightful commentary about this beloved regional architectural style, this book is the ideal primer for anyone eager to learn how a worldwide design movement was adapted to function in harmony with the unique climate, landscape and indigenous materials of the Pacific Northwest. Explore the Pacific Northwest's finest mid-century modern architecture with Oregon Made.
