SAH/SCC Tour
Saturday, March 20, 2010

Senior Campus Planner, architect, and SAH/SCC board member Dennis Whelan will lead an extensive walking tour of the University of California, Santa Barbara, campus. The 405-acre main campus setting on two miles of ocean bluff features spectacular views of the Channel Islands and the Santa Ynez Mountains.

The collection of notable architects who have designed buildings at UCSB includes William Pereira, Charles Luckman, A. Quincy Jones, Edward Killingsworth, Robert A.M. Stern, Michael Graves, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, and Antoine Predock, among others. Also noteworthy: the concept of coordinated color, material, and Wrightian blocks; the accommodation of weather and views; the bicycle-friendly layout; and how planners and architects responded to (and shaped) student and faculty use.

The tour will focus on the collection of buildings as they are sited within the campus master plan. Some interiors may be included, depending upon access. Additionally, the tour includes a visit with Alex Hauschild, an archivist at the University Art Museum's Architecture & Design Collection (ADC). ADC is a repository of more than 750,000 original drawings and records focusing on Southern California-based architects, such as Irving Gill, Rudolph Schindler, Kem Weber, and George Washington Smith, among many others.

You may choose to enhance your experience by staying overnight at the Faculty Club, designed by Charles Moore and William Turnbull in 1968. Space is very limited; reserve through the Club. http://www.faculty-club.ucsb.edu/
