Chicago Bauhaus and Beyond Visit to a 1974 Don Erickson Home
Sunday, June 29, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (CDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for a look inside and around this stunning work of architectural art,
designed by Don Erickson. Address provided upon registration.
An apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright, Don Erickson designed many homes in the Chicago area that use a mix of natural materials such as wood, stone, brick and more. This fantastic home, built in 1974, welcomes you through the bronze sunburst patterned front door, where you'll cross a rope-suspended bridge overlooking a pool and waterfall feature. Seen from overhead, the home appears as a series of overlapping and intersecting hexagons, and incorporates other Don Erickson signature elements, such as built-in conversation seating, soaring ceilings with skylights and the use
of heavy rope and chain in a number of places.
Don’t miss what’s sure to be a fun and informative summer event as we enjoy the home,
meet its current owners, some special guests, enjoy refreshments and
conversation with fellow CBB members.
Attire: Casual 70's inspired fashions suggested
FREE to members only, (make sure you have renewed for 2014)
