Pietro Belluschi (1899–1994) is known as the most important architect to have lived and worked in Oregon. He was recognized for being a prominent contributor to a style known as Pacific Northwest Regionalism as well as for mastering modern design innovations. While his buildings and influence can be found throughout the United States, many of his significant works are here in Oregon – including churches, homes and office buildings. Belluschi’s success was not only as an architect, he was also known and respected as a philosopher, educator, collaborator, advisor, and mentor. This exhibit shares, for the first time, an overview of Pietro Belluschi’s architectural contributions during his long and richly productive career.
