When many people think of Queen Anne and historic homes, the images that come to mind are the classic American Foursquares, Craftsmans, Bungalows, and Tudors that make up much of the neighborhood. But, if you’re a fan of the clean lines of modern architecture, the Queen Anne Historical Society has a tour for you.
The third annual Modern Queen Anne Tour features four notable examples of modern architecture on Queen Anne. Three residential homes are featured along with KEXP’s new home at the Seattle Center.
The architects responsible for each of the sites – Jeff Murdock, Marvin Anderson Architects, Olson Kundig, and SkB Architects – will be on hand to describe the projects, provide insider knowledge, and answer questions.
The tour takes place on Saturday, August 13th, starting at 2pm. Tickets are $10 each, and you’ll need to provide your own transportation to get from site to site. (A car is advised due to the distance between the tour locations.)
Post-tour, members of the Queen Anne Historical Society can attend a members-only reception. If you’re not a member, you can become one via Brown Paper Tickets by adding it to your tour purchase. Or, you can visit the Queen Anne Historical Society website to become a member and learn more the organization’s efforts to educate residents and preserve Queen Anne history.
