Rummer The eight-house Robert Rummer tour and lecture presented by the Historic Preservation League of Oregon were a smashing success. Architectural historian Jack Bookwalter provided an overview of mid-century residential architecture as context for Rummer's work and Mr. Rummer himself was in attendance to answer questions and provided many interesting (and amusing) anecdotes. He graciously applauded the craftsmen with whom he worked on his projects, giving them credit for implementing his designs. Several current Rummer homeowners participated in the Q&A - one even discovered that he's living in Rummer's former personal home - and there were even some out-of-state guests who traveled great distances to attend. This annual tour is highly recommended for anyone interested in mid-century design and architecture. More photos of the homes can be seen here. Mr. Rummer will be speaking again at Rejuvenation in Southeast Portland on May 25 (the day before his birthday!).
