Classic Houses of Portland, Oregon
1850-1950Book - 1999
"Since its founding, the city of Portland, Oregon, has exhibited a notable and impressive architectural character. From the classical and medieval revival homes of the city's early years, through the popular British-influenced Arts and Crafts houses of the 1920s and '30s, to the uniquely regional Northwest Style, Portland's architects established a century-long tradition of excellence in domestic architecture." "This book places the development of Portland's residential architecture in the context both of the city's growth and of evolving international design movements. It describes and illustrates more than 300 of Portland's most outstanding houses, covering twenty-three distinct architectural periods and styles." "Illustrated with plans, drawings, and photographs both historical and contemporary, Classic Houses of Portland, Oregon presents the distinguished houses that remain today and some vanished glories of the past. A useful appendix lists the houses by neighborhood for those who wish to explore the riches of Portland's architectural heritage."--BOOK JACKET.
