In The Mind of an Architect: On the Inner Workings of Pietro Belluschi’s Creative Process

In celebration of the 120th birthday of iconic Oregon architect Pietro Belluschi, the Oregon Historical Society (OHS) is thrilled to host Pierluigi Serraino for a public talk on the inner workings of Pietro Belluschi’s architecture through his participation to the 1958 Study on Creativity at UC Berkeley, the lost history of which Serraino recounts in his book The Creative Architect: Inside the Great Midcentury Personality Study.


Pierluigi Serraino, AIA, is an architect, author, and educator. His work and writings have been published in professional and scholarly journals such as Architectural Record, Architecture California, the Journal of Architectural Education, and Architectural Design (UK). He has authored and contributed to several books, among them Modernism Rediscovered (2000), Eero Saarinen (2005), and NorCalMod: Icons of Northern California Modernism (2006).
