Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


The majority of Portland's classic houses are still standing, a rich legacy and essential link to a time of stunning architectural accomplishment. This lavishly illustrated volume features more than 300 residences representing twenty-three distinct architectural styles from Greek Revival, Queen Anne, and Tudor to Bungalow, Prairie, Craftsman, and the uniquely regional Northwest Style.

In a fascinating home tour, the history of the city comes to life as well, with key information about the architects, original owners, and distinguishing features of each structure. These homes are the work of the most talented architects of Portland's first century, and each reflects the careful blending of national and international influences with local trends and tastes. In more than 200 plans and drawings and over 600 photographs both historical and contemporary, Classic Houses of Portland, Oregon, presents both the houses that remain and some vanished glories of the past. All take on a new importance today, as historical treasures and as exemplars of design values and quality that are now so rare. A useful appendix lists the houses by neighborhood for those who wish to explore the riches of Portland's architectural heritage.

Synopsis:

Portland's great residential architecture is presented in the context of the history and growth of the city as well as the broader, international architectural trends.
