Getty Grant Highlights Modern Architecture in SoCal
The Getty Foundation has awarded a $140,000 grant to the College of Environmental Design to plan and prepare for an exhibit on the post-war house in Southern California. A team of faculty and student researchers will study 10 homes and examine the role of technology and environment in their development. The exhibit, ¿Technology and Environment: The Post War House in Southern California,¿ is scheduled for 2013 and will include drawings, models and digital representations of the homes, as well as commentaries by the researchers.
The team includes architecture professors Lauren Bricker, Judith Sheine (department chair) and Pablo La Roche; landscape architecture Professor Philip Pregill; architecture lecturer Timothy Sakamoto; and Marc Treib, UC Berkeley architecture professor emeritus.
¿Technology and Environment¿ will be part of the Getty's "Modern Architecture" programs in 2013.
