The period between the two world wars was one of economic and social turmoil, but also one of great creativity in art, architecture and the decorative arts. With outstanding scholars and authors, Historic Seattle takes a look at some of the leading figures in the development of regional architecture and interiors in the period between 1918 and 1940. Their remarkable talents have left a legacy of late 1920s buildings with designs inspired by French and British Art Deco but also influenced by the water, flora, fauna, and industry of the Pacific Northwest. By the 1930s, these architects were being drawn by streamlined “modern” and international modernism.

Historic Seattle’s website describes each of the four lectures in detail. Tickets include four lectures and a box lunch.
