Curated by Bill Lacy and Susan de Menil, this exhibition included work by ten California architects whose work has been influential in fashioning a new spatial aesthetic with which to view architectural design. While many of the architects are not native Californians, they represent a ”westward migration”; they were the first generation to incorporate into their work the look of California culture and the environment–roads and signs, the chaotic clutter of freeways, strip malls, and frequent natural catastrophes–reflecting a brash and idiosyncratic wit.
