A House of Stone for Dr. Mackenzie; Rebuilding Portland's Architectural History
MetadataShow full item record
The residence of Dr. Kenneth A.J. and Cora Mackenzie, Portland, Oregon, now the William Temple House, has delighted observers with its intriguing design and exceptional craftsmanship ever since its completion in 1892. Acclaimed as a masterwork of Whidden and Lewis, this presentation documents the discovery that this Portland landmark was actually designed by another firm, McCaw and Martin. Masters of the Richardsonian Romanesque, William F. McCaw and Richard H. Martin, Jr., are best known as architects of Portland’s Dekum Building, the Armory (now the Gerding Theater), the First Presbyterian Church, and the University of Portland’s West Hall. They were briefly associated with architect F. Manson White, and who designed what among the three is not clear in the historical record. Shaping a new history is made easier by the increasing availability of digitized resources. This presentation provides an entertaining look at Portland’s past while exploring the lives and work of three preeminent and understudied architects: McCaw, Martin, and White.
