Alden B. Dow Home and Studio

Experience the best of Mid-Twentieth Century Modern Architecture at The Alden B. Dow Home and Studio.  Group, Private, and Daily Public Tours available by advanced reservation.

Imaginatively woven into the natural environment, the structure elicits you to question, peek around corners and travel on unknown paths. Be drawn in by the diverging angles, soaring roof lines, and brilliant color, natural light, and geometric patterns. The integration of building and site exemplifies Dow’s organic design philosophy.
