The Iowa Architectural Foundation will continue its virtual home tours series next month, featuring four homes with the midcentury modern design style that was popular between around 1945 and 1969. The event, “Mid-Century Modern Homes of Iowa Tours,” takes place April 26-29, with a live Q&A with the homeowners at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 1.

Houses include Oskaloosa’s famed Lamberson home (pictured above), designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and restored by the current homeowners. There’s also a home in Indianola, designed by architect David Block, who will join for the tour; a home in Des Moines, designed by architect Amos Emery; and a second in Oskaloosa, designed by Steffen Stoltz Nelson Architects.

Admission to the five-day event, which you can buy here, is $48. Tours will be released one day at a time starting on April 26.
