A bike tour of mid-century modern architecture and subdivisions in Montgomery County will follow Rock Creek Park trail and contrast the work of two leading mid-century architects. The tour, which includes lunch and interior visits, is presented by the Montgomery County Planning Department’s Historic Preservation Office, in partnership with AIA Potomac Valley. This is a Docomomo Tour Day event, sponsored by Docomomo-DC.
In the morning we will visit homes in the subdivisions of Hammond Hill and Hammond Wood, and Rock Creek Woods, designed by Charles Goodman, FAIA. After a boxed lunch, we will bike to North Chevy Chase Christian Church and North Chevy Chase Pool Bathhouse, the work of John Samperton, AIA.
