“The Speculative Houses of Portland Architectural Designer John Yeon”

Sunday, March 6 at 2 PM

This lecture will include a retrospective on Oregon architectural designer, John Yeon, focusing on his “Speculative House” series (1938-40). Leland Roth, Professor of Architectural History at the University of Oregon, will give a lecture on the life and career of one of Oregon’s most influential architectural designers. The presentation will highlight the nine “Speculative Houses” which Yeon designed after completing his internationally acclaimed Watzek House (1937). Featuring many innovative design elements, the houses helped to refine Yeon’s technique and to influence the Northwest Regional style of architecture. Robert Hinds, UO alumnus and owner of one of the Speculative Houses, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007, will introduce the topic.
