Part of Artist Talks and The Phyllis Wattis Distinguished Lecture Series

Thursday, March 7, 2019

7 p.m.

Floor 1, Phyllis Wattis Theater

Designed by a small group of Bay Area architects and designers in the early 1960s, the Sea Ranch development was envisioned as a progressive, inclusive community, guided by the idealistic principles of good design, economy of space, and harmony with the natural environment. Donlyn Lyndon is one of the founding members of MLTW (Moore, Lyndon, Turnbull, and Whitaker), the architects who designed some of the earliest buildings at The Sea Ranch, including Condominium One and Moonraker Athletic Center. Mary Griffin is a principal architect of Turnbull Griffin Haesloop, a firm that continues to design at The Sea Ranch today.

Join Lyndon for a presentation on The Sea Ranch, followed by a conversation with Griffin about their deep connection to environmental design, the California landscape, and upholding the founding design principles of The Sea Ranch. This talk is presented with UC Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design.
