The Schweikher House is once again participating in Docomomo US Tour Day this year and we are featuring specialized, in-depth, tours on October 9th. Tours will be focused on the influence of Japanese architecture and culture on the design of Paul Schweikher's own home in Schaumburg, led by an architect docent, as well as a tour designed around the influence worldwide travels had on artist, Doomsday Clock creator, and Schweikher House steward, Martyl Langsdorf.
