In celebration of Los Angeles' 1970s architecture and design, the Los Angeles Conservancy hosted a virtual benefit and premiere of "Levels of Kappe" in December, 2020 featuring the daring ‘70s work of renowned Los Angeles architect Ray Kappe, who passed away at the age of 92 in November 2019. Considered one of the great innovators and educators of Modern architecture, Kappe’s lifelong love of nature and the environment came together in designs that remain visionary to this day.
Brought back specifically for Modernism Week, "Levels of Kappe," hosted by author, historian, and Modernism Week Board of Directors member, Alan Hess, is an exciting visual presentation that explores Kappe’s history, takes you on a virtual tour of three L.A. area residences he designed in the ‘70s, and includes remarks from architecture experts—including his wife, architectural historian Shelly Kappe, as well as his son and architectural partner, Finn Kappe. You won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to go inside some of Kappe’s most extraordinary 1970s residential design rarely seen by the public.
The organizer of this program is Modernism Week. This program is streaming through May 31, 2021.
