Harris Armstrong House Tour -- Sun 2 May 2010

project: Armstrong Residence II, 1938.
location: Oakland, Missouri.
condition: somewhat modified.
architect: Harris Armstrong, FAIA.

This detail of the stone and brick masonry facade created by Armstrong illustrates his intentional, considered reuse of remaining masonry from an earlier 19th century stone foundation on the site. The brick and stone wall creates a kind of one-story mask for the combination house and architectural office.

See information below for details on the house tour. Tickets are limited, so make your reservation soon. I will be presenting a special slideshow during the "after party" so consider attending if at all possible.

Funds raised through this event will benefit the Sheldon Art Galleries exhibitions program.
