Steel Development House #1 Tour

Saturday, October 11, 2014

PSPF was proud to unveil the beautifully rehabilitated Steel Development House #1 (Wexler & Harrison, 1962). The rehabilitation of the historic modernist structure was expertly supervised by Lance O'Donnell, AIA (o2 Architecture) who was on-hand to answer tourgoer's questions. To the delight of the attendees, architect Donald Wexler, FAIA made a surprise appearance. Each attendee received a copy of PSPF's 2010 tribute journal Donald Wexler: Architect and the Steel Modern After All These Years booklet, both authored by architect Patrick McGrew. Attendees also received a special commemorative "ticket" to the event designed by graphic artist Gary Wexler.
