Architecture and design enthusiasts discovered a new perspective at “Future Meets Past: California Architecture + Design” presentation Nov. 16 at the University Club in Santa Barbara.
Fifty or so guests attended the event, where they wore masks.
Santa Barbara architect and author Marc Appleton discussed California Mediterranean home design. And Greene & Greene expert Ted Bosley, the former executive director of the Gamble House in Pasadena, discussed siblings Greene & Greene’s home designs in Santa Barbara.
Landscape architect Isabelle Greene, the maternal granddaughter of Henry
Mather Greene, was among the distinguished guests.
