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).
