An Evening with Donlyn Lyndon, FAIA

Presented by AIAVC for Experience Architecture week

Back Event Oct 20, 2018 @ 6 pm

Architect Donlyn Lyndon, FAIA, is widely recognized for his lifetime dedication to the design of places, and for his research examining the structure of place and the ethical dimensions of design. We are thrilled to bring him to Sacramento as the featured speaker during Experience Architecture.

Lyndon will discuss The Sea Ranch, which he has been centrally involved since its founding. With partners Charles Moore, William Turnbull, and Richard Whitaker, he designed Condominium One, built in 1965 as a defining example of the principles that would make The Sea Ranch a powerful model of architecture tuned to its region. While the Central Valley is a very different place, the ideas that underlie the design of The Sea Ranch—responding to​​ the​ climate and topography and the imaginative adaptation of traditional ways of building—will spark a much-needed discussion of what an architecture of the Valley might be.
