Los Angeles architect Ray Kappe went on his own in 1954, completing dozens of Modernist houses and teaching. After serving as Founding Chairman of the Department of Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona, Kappe resigned in 1972 and started the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC) which is the Hogwarts of architecture, turned out several thousand graduates, and is considered one of the top architecture schools in the country. Ray died in his 90’s in 2019, but joining us from Los Angeles is his wife and SCI-ARC co-founder Shelly Kappe and their son, Finn Kappe. Later on, jazz from the UK with Claire Martin.
