Friends of SD Architecture Presents Robert Mosher and Keith York

Date: 
01/21/2012 - 9:30am - 12:00pm

Robert Mosher, FAIARobert Mosher, FAIA, attended The Art Center School and USC, then majored in architecture at the University of Washington. At the beginning of his career after World War II, he worked for Myron Hunt & HC Chambers, Harwell Hamilton Harris, and William Templeton Johnson. The first office that he designed was for his father’s Green Dragon Colony in La Jolla. He worked on this with another architect, Roy Drew, whom he had met at the Hunt and Chambers office. Mosher and Drew continued to collaborate, and their work drew the attention of several shelter publications. Their firm eventually grew into Mosher Drew Watson Ferguson.
 
Now, at the age of 91, Mosher can look back on his survival of booms and busts and his influence on the modern-architecture movement. He will speak at the January FSDA meeting in dialogue with architecture historian Keith York of ModernSanDiego, as part of their talk entitled "Modernism Defined by Someone Who Committed It"

York will query Mosher about his definition of modernism – a definition that Mosher says distinguishes San Diego and his colleagues – and about his attitude toward historic preservation, which has figured in battles over the fate of the Green Dragon Colony and some of the houses that he has designed."

This lecture will be held at
NewSchool of Architecture and Design.
1249 F Street, San Diego 92101.
