UCSB Faculty Club Study Day
Tour and Symposium
Saturday, December 01, 2012

The SAH/SCC is pleased to offer its members a very special opportunity to attend UCSB's symposium and tour of the Faculty Club (1967-8, Moore, Lyndon, Turnbull, Whitaker (MLTW)). Through a special arrangement with the University, the SAH/SCC has reserved 10 advance-sale tickets to this important eventfor our members. Charles W. Moore is best known for his groundbreaking residential design work at Sea Ranch and for being an active educator.

This event is being organized by UCSB professor, noted author and SAH/SCC member, Volker M. Welter, Ph.D. Guest speakers will include architect Donlyn Lyndon (former partner in Moore Lyndon Turnbull Whittaker), John Ruble, FAIA (Partner in Moore Ruble Yudell), Tina Beebe (architectural colorist), former clients of Charles Mooreand a host of experts on the architect's work.

As David Gebhard has written, Moore and his colleague William Turnbull, Jr. found inspiration in Bernard Maybeck’s Faculty Club (1902) at UC Berkeley as well as the Spanish Colonial Revival context of Santa Barbara. The design of the building at UCSB makes several symbolic references to the California’s Bay Tradition, Spanish Colonial Revival-even roadside architecture and the mighty icon of the freeway.

This symposium will offer new ways of thinking about Moore's work and explore the significance of the UCSB Faculty Club as an important piece of 20th century architecture.
