Portland Architecture is proud to welcome a new ongoing sponsor: Portland Modern, a local real estate company owned and operated by Bob Zaikoski.
Bob specializes in modern residential architecture. His website features a special section devoted to Rummer Homes, midcentury-modern homes in the Portland area built by developer Bob Rummer throughout the 1960s and early 1970s (there are more than 350 of them), which were directly influenced by the Eichler homes in Southern California featured in the likes of Look magazine and Better Homes and Gardens. A few weeks ago Bob and I talked at length about how some of Portland's most valuable architecture is the single-family houses built in the first decades after World War II. And on his Portland Modern website, you'll find lots of writing about these topics, as well as a grassroots effort to save John Yeon's Portland Oregon Visitors Information Center.
Bob and Portland Modern are also advertising on a Portland Architecture blog with ever-increasing readership. Over the last couple weeks, our stat monitors have detected nearly 1,000 visitors per day. Any other smart advertisers care to join the party? Nudge nudge.
