Tour Fisher House with DOCOMOMO on Saturday

DOCOMOMO-PHL is hosting tours of Lou Kahn’s Norman Fisher House in Hatboro this Saturday.

The Fisher house, built between 1960-1967, is comprised of two offset cubes clad in stone and cypress. The house’s integrated wood interiors and finishes are a modernist treat.

The Fisher House will likely be on the market soon, but for now you can get inside on a 45 minute tour with fellow modern architecture fans this Saturday between 10:30am until 3pm. Tours are timed and tickets may still be purchased online.

To whet your appetite, Curbed stopped by an estate sale held by the Fisher family earlier this year and snapped a few pictures. And if you really want to nerd-out on the design and details, dig into Pierson Booher’s 2009 Penn Preservation masters thesis, Louis Kahn’s Fisher House: A Case Study on the Architectural Detail and Design Intent.
