“Ray’s own home may be the greatest house in all of Southern California.”
-Stephen Kanner, president, A + D (Architecture + Design) Museum
Fresh from a retrospective exhibition at the A + D Museum in West Hollywood, Ray Kappe FAIA, founder of SCI-Arc and architectural icon, will be in the Design Within Reach Beverly Hills Studio – sited in a 1972 Kappe-designed bank building – on Thursday, February 12, from 6:30pm to 9:00pm.
Kappe will give an informal talk about his 50+-year career as an architect and the resulting projects that have come to shape Southern California’s architectural landscape, including the much-lauded wood and glass canyon residences he built in western L.A. County in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Following the talk will be a Q&A. Signed copies of the A + D Museum’s Ray Kappe: A Retrospective 1953-2003 catalog will be available for purchase during the event ($35 cash or check made out to A + D Museum).
If you can’t make it to the event, you can come by anytime between February 8 and February 25 during Studio hours to see the exhibition – featuring drawings, models, and photographs of Kappe’s work at the Beverly Hills Studio, courtesy of the A + D Museum.
Space is limited; please RSVP by Monday, February 9 to [email protected]
