Irving J. Gill New Architecture for a Great Country 2016
September 24, 2016 - March 31, 2017

Multiple San Diego and Southern California cultural organizations are joining resources to tell the story of Irving J. Gill, an extraordinary San Diegan, and one of the key founders of modern architecture. Exhibitions and programs will be held throughout San Diego County to explore Gillís life and work. With presentations at multiple institutions, visitors will gain a broader understanding of his life, architecture, and legacy.

Over the course of his career Gill produced a venerable body of work that has influenced generations of American architects and builders. His revolutionary ideas in building aesthetics and technology have permanently impacted the building arts for over a century. Public programs, panel discussions, lectures, architecture tours, and original publications will be integrated into this unique and expansive collaborative project.
