Pasadena Modern Lecture & Tour -- March 16 and 20

Postby Christine » Tue Feb 01, 2005 6:01 pm

Pasadena Heritage Presents:

THE MODERN SUBURBAN PARADISE
a talk by Alan Hess for Pasadena Heritage
Wednesday, March 16, 2005
7:30 pm at Art Center College of Design

Renowned author Alan Hess will explore Pasadena's fertile architectural traditions which placed it in an ideal position to lead the exploration of suburban residential architecture after World War II. Today we are finally realizing the actual richness and breadth of those designs for suburban living – a knowledge that can help us understand and strengthen the quality of our cities.

Mr. Hess is the architecture critic for the San Jose Mercury News. His books include Googie: Fifties Coffee Shop Architecture, Googie Redux: Ultramodern Roadside Architecture, Rancho Delux, The Architecture of John Lautner, Viva Las Vegas, and his latest work The Ranch House.

The lecture will be held in the Art Center College of Design’s Ahmanson Auditorium, which is located at the Hillside Campus at 1700 Lida Street, Pasadena. Guests are encouraged to arrive at 6:30 pm to visit the Student Gallery and tour the Hillside Campus, designed by Craig Ellwood Associates in 1974. Parking space is extremely limited, so carpooling is encouraged.

PASADENA MODERN
a drive-yourself tour featuring six privately owned homes
Sunday, March 20, 2005
9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Historically, Pasadena has been a city that nurtured architectural creativity -- from the artist’s culture that flourished during the Arts and Crafts Movement, to the high standards of design perpetuated by architects such as Myron Hunt, Wallace Neff, Reginald Johnson, and Roland Coate in the 1920s and 30s, through the Modern era. This drive-yourself tour will feature six private residences, including the work of Harold Zook, who worked for Modernist icon Albert Frey before settling in Pasadena; Leland Evison, who started his career as a draftsman for Craftsman architect Myron Hunt; Buff, Straub, & Hensman, an influential firm which left a lasting impact on Southern California; and Kelsey and Ladd, who designed the Pasadena Art Museum (now the Norton Simon).

Tickets:
Lecture only: $10
House Tour only: $30 PH members/$35 general public
Lecture and Tour ticket: $35 PH members/$40 general public, a $5 savings

For additional information or to purchase tickets, please call 626-441-6333 or visit us online at www.pasadenaheritage.org.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
We are also seeking volunteers with a love for Modern architecture to work during the house tour. We have both speaking and nonspeaking roles available, and no previous experience is necessary. All volunteers receive a free ticket to both the lecture and the house tour. If you are interested in participating, please contact Kathy Carr, our volunteer coordinator, at 626-441-6333 x11, or by email at kcarr@pasadenaheritage.org.

Thanks, and I hope to see you there!

Hey Christine,

I e-mailed the day you initially posted this, and have not heard anything back. Any news?

Alan Hess on Wednesday

Is anyone going to the Alan Hess lecture this Wednesday. The posting above says parking is limited and car-pooling is encouraged.

I live in Sherman Oaks and am planning on attending. Any one want to carpool?

Leland Evison House on Pasadena Tour

Postby Josquin » Wed Mar 16, 2005 2:13 pm

I was at the Evison House on Monday night. This is probably the smallest house on the tour, but what a well thought out post and beam house. The second owners of the house liked it so much they had Leland design a house for them in Pacific Palisades. Much of the original house remains and is really worth a look. I'm a bit envious that Kevin got the Frank house, but I'm enjoying the opportunity to learn about a fine local modernist architect.

Well... actually, I got a change of venue today. I'll be at the Kelsey house and will be the front docent for the morning shift.

I've got a serious case of stage fright! EEEK! :o

Pasadena Modern Tour

Postby Josquin » Mon Mar 21, 2005 11:47 am

A great tour. I also thought the Schwerdtfeger house was great. What a well sited house and a terrific garden! The Evison/Conn house was originally unpainted redwood siding, the interior built ins, fireplace and cieling were unpainted. Evison usually left natural finishes in his modern homes.

Pasadena Modern Tour -- Thanks!

Postby Christine » Wed Mar 23, 2005 10:54 am

Thanks to everyone associated with the Modern Committee & Lotta Livin' for allowing us to promote our Pasadena Modern Tour on this message board, thanks to everyone who attended the tour, and very special thanks to those of you who volunteered your time to help us out with both research and staffing the houses. (And my personal thanks to the weather gods for giving us a break from the rain!)

Thanks again! We are looking forward to featuring more of our Modern resources on future tours.

Christine
