Pietro Belluschi FAIA (1899Ė1994) was one of Oregonís leading architects, nationally recognized as a prominent contributor to the style known as Pacific Northwest Regionalism and as a renowned Modernist.
With over forty years of practice as an architect himself, Pietro's son, Tony, has a unique perspective on his fatherís life and work. Tony will share his memories of Pietro as a father, adviser, mentor and friend, and also give insights about Pietro's influence on architecture and our built environment.
This presentation will highlight new perspectives gained while researching Pietro's career for the Oregon Historical Society exhibit. He will also discuss items displayed at OHS that are from the family's private collection. After the presentation, Tony will provide a brief walk-through of the exhibit for those who are interested.
