Bloedel Reserve Architect Paul Hayden Kirk
Alan Michelson, Librarian of the College of Built Environment at the University of Washington will lecture on architect Paul Hayden Kirk, designer of the Guest House in the Japanese Garden at Bloedel Reserve. Paul Hayden Kirk earned a degree in architecture from the University of Washington in 1937, and opened his practice in 1939. He soon was regarded as one of Seattle's leading architects. While many of his designs were influenced by the Modernist style, Kirk also recognized and used other styles, including traditional Japanese architecture and "Northwest Regionalism," which drew heavily from the traditional structures of Northwest Native Americans.
The Bloedels, on the counsel of their friend and advisor, landscape architect Thomas Church, engaged Kirk in 1962 to design a "guest house" in the newly installed Japanese. The building honors local traditions and materials, suggesting a Coast Salish longhouse of Douglas fir and western red cedar, and blending into the Japanese garden with its glass walls and shoji screens.
