Architecture+Design Film Festival: Lutah – A Passion for Architecture, A Life in Design

Thu, Apr 14 / 9 pm
Directed by Kum-Kum Bhavnani
2014, USA,65 min

This new film tells the story of Lutah Maria Riggs, a female pioneer in Southern California architecture. Some of the earliest modern architecture in the region developed from a hybrid of Spanish Mission and International Style, a modest blend of tradition and innovation paralleled by Lutah’s own mix of tenacity and charisma. Long ignored by historians, her works are cherished Santa Barbara icons.
