The Rose and the Chrysanthemum: Japanese Influence on NW Architecture
Tickets: $18 [AHC Members: $13]
Sponsored by: OregonHome Magazine

A craze for all things oriental swept the United States in the last part of
the 19th century, and the Arts and Crafts movement was highly indebted to
the Japanese aesthetic. It is reflected to greater or lesser degree in
Portland's tens of thousands of craftsman bungalows.

Japanese influence was perhaps even stronger in the development of
Mid-Century Modern style in the 1950s, and it continues to the present day.
Join architectural historian Jack Bookwalter to learn about the origins and
the depth of Portland's debt to the architectural aesthetic of our
trans-Pacific neighbor. Pre-registration is recommended- call 503-231-7264
