Modern & More (an illustrated lecture):

Professor Kenneth Breisch, Ph.D., noted architectural historian and former Director and founder of the USC Graduate Program in Historic Preservation, will be our special guest speaker for an insightful evening presentation before the Spring Home Tour.

Modern Works (a drive-yourself architectural tour):

Pasadena’s postwar years saw a plethora of hyper-contemporary and experimental home designs, many of which were built overlooking Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco. From Mid-Century post-and-beam to late Modern glass-and-steel wonders, this year’s home tour will visit several fine examples of architect-designed private homes constructed after 1945. Guests will drive themselves to each location where ongoing docent-guided tours take place, describing the architectural features and history of each house.
