2013 Architectural Tour

Jul 16, 2013 09:00am -
Jul 16, 2013 04:30pm

Event Description

Hillcrest in the morning.

Stroll from the Langham Huntington, Pasadena hotel directly into the Pasadena Hillcrest neighborhood, one of Pasadena's most beautiful neighborhoods. Explore various architectural styles such as Mediterranean, Victorian and the neighborhood's ubiquitous Craftsman inspired homes. Showcased on the tour are numerous grand estate mansions along with Craftsman homes such as the Freeman House designed by architects Arthur and Alfred Heineman and the Blacker House designed by Charles and Henry Greene.

The morning walking tour will allow you to discover an established neighborhood of Pasadena that was originally utilized as sheep ranch in the 1850's. Platted during 1886 with streets following the natural curves of the canyon rims, the neighborhood was the first subdivision in Pasadena that followed new planning principles that would integrate suburbs into the natural environment.

Bungalow Heaven in the afternoon.

After enjoying a box lunch in the park, you will be transported to Bungalow Heaven, a quiet, leafy, close-knit neighborhood of historic, early 20th century bungalow homes, many built during the Arts & Crafts period. You will closely see how the movement stood in opposition to the increasing industrialization of the time, emphasizing the artistry of the individual craftsman and the subtle beauty of nature.

The bungalows of Bungalow Heaven reflect these principles through their unique architectural details and the wide use of natural and native materials. The Gamble House (the site of AIBD/ICORD's Wednesday night dinner event) is the most prominent example of Arts and Crafts architecture in Pasadena, but this tour will expose you to beautiful examples of how the artisans created similar homes for the ordinary families of the period.

Space is limited due to transportation needs and AIBD tours commonly sell out. Therefore advanced registration is required.
