Building in the Landscape: The Sea Ranch and Making Places
Exhibit – Artifacts | May 16 – September 30, 2008 every day | Wurster Hall, 210, Environmental Design Library

Sponsors: Environmental Design Archives, Environmental Design Library

Exploring the concept of making places, this exhibit focuses on the innovative Sonoma County community, The Sea Ranch, and on Architecture Professor Emeritus Donlyn Lyndon’s work in other areas. Lyndon’s works explore the idea that, “environment is that piece of reality which gets through to us,” and the things that enter, “our selected environment should help us to ‘place’ ourselves specifically in a broad context.” Nowhere is this more evident than in the work that he did with MLTW at the Sea Ranch, and which he continues to do there and in other locations.

The exhibit includes highlights from the Environmental Design Archives and Environmental Design Library collections, such as original sketches, photographs, ephemera and books.

Curators: Waverly Lowell, Curator, Environmental Design Archives, and Miranda Hambro, Assistant Curator, Environmental Design Archives

Attendance restrictions: Exhibit on view when library open. Check website for library hours:
