Gimme Shelter

Housing and Community Design

A discussion of key developments in California housing: the mass-produced bungalow (an icon of American life); the refined domestic design of Julia Morgan; the postwar suburbs as places of social conformity – or not?; and contemporary designs in multiple family housing in Los Angeles, the country’s densest urban area.

Speakers: Christopher M. Streba, independent scholar, Berkeley; Karen McNeil, UC Berkeley, historian of Julia Morgan; Alan Loomis, architect and planner; Tom Zakim, history, UC San Diego
