Mid-Century Modern Architecture

Mid-Century Modern is the the name given to the popular design style of the mid-20th century (roughly 1933 - 1965). Ultra contemporary at the time, it started to fall out of favor by the end of the 1960s. However, what comes around goes around and it has made something of a comeback. Here in central Oregon, new homes are being designed in the mid-century modern style right alongside those of craftsman, prairie, and farm-house styles.
