MONTGOMERY STREET RESIDENCES
Join the ICAA-NW chapter as we visit renowned high style classical residences in the S.W. Hills of Portland, Oregon, for a measured drawing class and sketching tour. The event will be led by Ferguson & Shamamian Principal, and Notre Dame alumnus, Stephen Chrisman, who practices in New York City. Stephen will be providing a lecture on French American architecture, as well as on methods & means of performing measured drawings - Saturday evening before the tour.
The tour will focus on historic period houses from the era of American Beaux Arts Eclecticism. It will begin with a private viewing of the very distinguished and authentic A.J. Lewthwaite house, in the French Renaissance Louis XVI style, designed by Albert Parr & Francis Ward of San Francisco (c. 1926).
Other residences on the tour, to name just a few, will include the prominent Max S. Hirsch residence in the Tudor style by Architect Ellis Lawrence (c. 1922); the elegant Leon Hirsch residence in the Jacobethan style by Architects Sutton & Whitney (c. 1922); the formal William P. Hawley residence in the Colonial style by Architect Ellis Lawrence (c. 1927); the unique Coleman Wheeler English Cottage style residence by Architect A.E. Doyle (c. 1923); and the Frank J.
