Would you rather see Charles Goodman’s designs up close and personal rather than on your computer screen? Beyond the occasional open house, now is your chance. Get your tickets to the annual Hollin House and Garden Tour, which will be held April 26 from 12 to 6 p.m. Tickets are $20. The tour starts at Fort Hunt Road at Paul Spring Road rain or shine. Here’s the registration form. Call (703) 768-1662 for more information.
A free pre-tour lecture open to the public, “Hollin Hills: Modern Becomes Historic,” will be held from 11:00 a.m. to noon at Hollin Meadows Elementary School. Architectural historian John Burns will lead a discussion on the original design types and the evolution of architecture over the past 50 years. Landscape architect Dennis Carmichael will discuss the common area landscape of Hollin Hills as well as its contemporary garden types.
