It's entry time for Western Home Awards 1985-86.
Two years ago, we presented a photographic collage of the 72 previous jurors; four years ago, we showed the covers that heralded the main articles, 1957 to 1979. These glances at the past served to underline the program's developing history and prestigious participants.
Within the next month, the doors at left will grace our official call for entries, to be mailed to registered architects throughout the 13 Western states. To each winner, we will present an award certificate complete with a signed photographic print of the doors.
In 1908, Charles and Henry Greene designed this beautiful teak and leaded-glass entry for the David and Mary Gamble "bungalow" in Pasadena. As part of the international Craftsman movement, the brothers Greene blended natural materials and fine craftsmanship with their appreciation for the casual life style possible in the moderate-climated West, bringing forth an enormously influential style of a architecture. Today fully restored, the Gamble house remains a stunning example of man's ability to create an architecture of timeless intrigue and beauty. (The house is open for 1-hour tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 to 3, sundays noon to 3; $4 adults, $3 seniors, under 18 free; telephone 818/793-3334.)
In April, we will announce the jurors for this year's awards program. In June, they will gather at Sunset's Menlo Park headquarters to select the winners. And in October, Sunset Magazine will feature the winning houses. Who is eligible to enter?
Entries must be the work of registered architects in the 13 Western states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. Only projects completed in these states since January 1, 1981, will be eligible. Entries may be made by an architect or owner with the other's consent. A developer or builder may enter with the consent of both architect and owner.
Within the next month, architects in the West should receive an entry brochure. If you're a registered architect and don't receive one by April 19, or if you're a builder, developer, or homeowner and would like one, please write to AIA--Sunset Magazine, Box 2345, Menlo Park, Calif. 94025. Entry fee is $50.
