DWR Event: Hollin Hills and the Lasting Influence of Charles Goodman

With the biennial Hollin Hills House and Garden Tour just a few weeks away, the DWR Georgetown Studio will be hosting a panel discussion from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 12. The panel, which I will be moderating, will explore the groundbreaking neighborhood and architect Charles Goodman’s influence on mid-century modern residential architecture.

The panel will include two award-winning architects: Eason Cross, FAIA, and Michael Cook, AIA. Eason lives in Hollin Hills and worked for Goodman from 1952 to 1959. Michael, of Cook Architecture and Modern Constructs, lives in a Goodman home and has won a historic preservation award for a remodel of a Goodman in Hammond Wood. Cocktails and light snacks will be served.

I hope you will buy tickets to the Hollin Hills tour (Modern Capital is a proud sponsor) and come to Design Within Reach in Georgetown for the panel. I look forward to seeing you at these two events, which are great opportunities to mingle with other modernists here in DC.
