Event description
Tour of modernist buildings produced by the Puget Sound School of designers in the mid-twentieth century

About this Event

This tour visits four outstanding examples of the Pacific Northwest’s expression of modernism produced by the Puget Sound School of designers in the mid-twentieth century. These buildings demonstrate how the regional style successfully translated from small residential construction to large public projects. Paul Hayden Kirk’s University Unitarian Church and Blakeley Psychiatric Clinic showcase the post-and-beam bypass construction that took advantage of the abundant high-grade wood in this region. Also included: Bloedel and Winkenwerder Halls on the University of Washington campus (Grant, Copeland and Chervenak). Special guest L. Jane Hastings FAIA, will join the tour to discuss her distinguished career in architecture.
