Private Guided Tour of the Hassrick House
Designed by Richard Neutra
Thursday, April 2
2 to 4 pm
Join us for a private guided tour of the Hassrick House, a mid-century modern gem right here in East Falls. Designed by Austrian-born architect Richard Neutra, this house was built in 1958 and after a painstaking renovation project, it’s now on Philadelphia’s Register of Historic Places. This is one of only a few east coast homes designed by Neutra, a significant architect whose work is located primarily in southern California. Floor to ceiling windows look out on private gardens and Fairmount Park, and the native materials and superb craftsmanship (including a kitchen created by renowned woodworker George Nakashima) make it one of a kind.
We’ll begin with a slide talk by Alison Eberhardt, a graduate architecture student from Jefferson University who has been actively involved in the student research and discovery about the house. Afterwards, she will lead us on a tour. We will also have a chance to see research posters created by other architecture students.
