From the late 1930s to the 1970s, two brothers, Burton and Warren Tremaine, along with their respective wives, commissioned nearly thirty architecture and design projects to modern architects. Along with Richard Neutra and Oscar Niemeyer, who designed the best-known Tremaine Houses, Philip Johnson and Frank Lloyd Wright created iconic designs for the family. In this lecture, UCSB Professor Volker M. Welter will analyze the Tremaine Houses and other related projects by world-acclaimed architects, highlighting Santa Barbara's moment in modern architectural history. 

This event is generously sponsored by Kitchell.
