Event Description

The Historical Museum of Skagit County will be presenting an exhibit of residential design works of regionally noted architect Henry Klein (1920-2013). The exhibit, entitled “Henry Klein Homes: Light, Form and Materiality Through the Decades, will open November 22, and run through March of 2020. The work spans five decades from the mid-1950’s until his retirement from the practice in the early 2000’s. Constant themes of natural light, indoor/outdoor connections, natural materials, gracious overhangs and beautiful screening weave through every decade. The exhibit also attempts to highlight some of the clients, contractors, other design professionals who worked with Henry, and some of the homeowners who live in his houses today. “When the work is organized by decade, it is wonderful to see the consistency of expression as well as the evolution of Henry’s designs,” said Julie Blazek, Partner at HKP Architects. This is an opportunity for the public and interested design professionals to see a wonderful collection of photographs of the design and construction of these homes. His process of design is highlighted, including working drawings, hand sketches and physical models. “The timelessness of Henry’s designs, integration of nature, and the honesty in the expression of materials, speak not only to Henry’s formidable design skills but also to his gentle and honest nature,” said Brian Poppe, Partner at HKP Architects.
