From Docomomo WEWA:
On Thursday, July 13 at 7:00 p.m., the King County Historic Preservation Program hosts a meeting at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 6211 NE 182nd Street, Kenmore, to learn more about a historic context statement on Modern era residential development recently completed for King County. Susan Boyle, AIA, a principal at BOLA Architecture + Planning, and Docomomo WEWA Board member, will present findings from her research into the Modern era heritage of the county.
King County’s Historic Preservation Program has been working to develop a more complete understanding of the importance of the region’s rich Modern era heritage. The context statement is meant to guide historic preservation efforts throughout the county and to serve as a basis for future preservation planning by property owners, architects, and local jurisdictions. It will inform home owners, designers, planners, and developers and give rise to greater appreciation of the remarkable houses from this post-war period.
Boyle’s presentation will include a sample of representative properties from communities throughout the county including Bellevue, Kirkland, Burien, Lake Forest Park, Normandy Park, and Seattle’s Central Area and West Seattle neighborhoods. Given the location of this presentation she will also focus on the remarkable work of designer/developer/builder John Burrows and houses in the Lake Forest Park area. The presentation will close with a tour of the Church, designed by noted Northwest Modern architect Roland Terry, co-sponsored by Docomomo WEWA.
The context statement has been financed in part with federal funds from the National Park Service, Department of the Interior administered by the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) and King County.
This event is free and open to the public.
