Brierly and Berndston House Tour by Bus

October 20, 2012 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Meeting and ending locations:
The bus will be parked alongside the Commerce Court building, opposite the main entrance to the Station Square parking garage.

Board at 9:45 a.m.

Gerald Lee Morosco, architect, author, and Taliesin Fellow, will co-lead this bus tour with Al Tannler, PHLF’s historical collections director. We will view six houses and visit five by Cornelia Brierly and/or Peter Berndtson in West Mifflin, Swisshelm Park, and Pittsburgh’s East End. Apprentices to Frank Lloyd Wright, together and separately, Brierly and Berndtson “created some of the finest Wrightian residential architecture to be found anywhere. Beginning with the Notz House of 1939 [which tour participants will see] and taking into account their 11-year joint practice and Peter’s work between 1958 and 1972, almost 90 designs have been documented,” said Al.

$30 PHLF members; $55 non-members (includes a complimentary one-year membership in PHLF)

This tour is limited to 36 people.

Paid reservations by Friday, October 12. THIS TOUR IS SOLD OUT!
