Explore the Pacific Northwest's finest mid-century modern architecture with Oregon Made.
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 offered both a deep dive into the work of Oregon's mid-century modern masters and visits to carefully-selected homes which embody the very best of Pacific Northwest modern design. Building on our MCM work, in 2023 Restore Oregon launched a year full of mid-century modern educational experiences through Restore Oregon Modernism, highly curated architecture and design events to inspire Oregonians to preserve, reuse, and pass forward mid-century modern gems year-round.
With the publication of Oregon Made, Restore Oregon assembled a decade of home 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), insightful commentary about this beloved regional architectural style, and a forward by Anthony and Marti Belluschi, this book was conceived as 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.
Now in its second printing, this fully-updated edition features over two dozen new photographs of seven striking mid-century homes, including works by noted Pacific Northwest architects Richard Campbell and Joachim Grube.
