a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!


Timberline Lodge
January 11

A massive structure located on the snow crested slopes of 11,000 ft. Mt. Hood, Timberline Lodge is a grand example of Cascadian architecture. Constructed by the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression era of the 1930's, each detail of the lodge was handmade in the Arts and Crafts tradition with hewn beams, wrought iron, carved linoleum, furniture, fixtures, mosaics, murals, and textiles inspired by Native American, pioneer, and wildlife themes indigenous to the region. It is also unique in America... as the only 20th Century public building of its size entirely constructed and furnished by hand with original craft work.
