Biographical/Historical Note

The son of Romanian immigrants, Raymond Kappe was born on August 4, 1927 in Minneapolis. After his family relocated to Los Angeles, Kappe attended Emerson Junior High School in West Los Angeles, which had been designed by Richard Neutra in the late 1930s. The two-story steel-framed building with sliding glass doors for outdoor classrooms and rooftop terraces made a valuable impression on him, as did Neutra's apartments in Westwood. These early experiences with modern architecture, combined with his love of drawing and talent in mathematics and science, helped shape his career path while he was still a teenager. He spent a single semester at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1945 before he was drafted into the postwar U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, where he served for two years as a topographical surveying instructor. After his discharge, Kappe attended the University of California, Berkeley, earning his B.Arch in 1951.
After graduation, Kappe worked as a draftsman for the San Francisco firm of Anshen and Allen, where he was involved in the design of the Eichler tract homes. Later that year, he moved back to Los Angeles to work with Carl Maston, a lesser-known but highly practiced modern architect. In 1953, the pair each designed a six-unit apartment building side-by-side on National Boulevard in West Los Angeles. The success of the project led Kappe to open his own architecture and planning firm, which he operated as a private venture until 1968.
Most of Kappe's early houses consisted of small post-and-beam structures with flat or shallow-pitched roofs. Inspired by the postwar housing boom in Southern California and the Case Study House program, Kappe envisioned the single-family house as the ideal medium for experimentation in prefabricated construction. The objective was to produce a prototype that could be duplicated and slightly altered to meet the needs of individual sites and clients. By the early 1960s, he had developed a structural system that rooted six or eight steel-reinforced concrete or wooden towers into the ground, effectively reducing the footprint of the home. Also, while many of his contemporaries distanced themselves from the construction process, Kappe embraced a system of design-build throughout his career. The design for Kappe's own residence, completed in 1967, typified the architect's interest in multi-level and cost-effective modular construction on outwardly "unbuildable" sites. The muscular Douglas fir composition and reliance on the surrounding landscape reflected his Bay Area training, as well as his appreciation for vernacular traditions dating to the local Arts and Crafts movement. He would echo this complex treatment of light, space, materials, and texture, along with the complete integration of site, in many of his other hillside projects throughout Los Angeles.
During the 1960s, Kappe joined the AIA Urban Design Committee with future partners Herb Kahn and Rex Lotery with the goal of developing new methods of hillside building. Kahn Kappe Lotery Architects Planners (1970-1974), later Kahn Kappe Lotery Boccato Architects Planners (1974-1982), undertook a number of large scale planning and residential projects throughout California. Concerned with energy efficiency and new state environmental laws, much of the work reveals a newfound reliance on steel and concrete construction, as well as natural light and heating elements. With the advent of postmodernism and the movement away from planning studies towards developer-driven implementation strategies in large cities by the early 1980s, however, the partners amicably agreed to dissolve the firm in order to uphold the integrity of their design philosophies.
Since 1982, Kappe has worked both independently and in collaboration with others, including his sons Finn and Ron Kappe, on numerous projects. In recent years, he has returned to his interest in prefabricated modular design. In 2003, developer Steve Glenn approached him about producing a line of prefabricated, sustainable houses called LivingHomes. In 2007, he completed the first residence to be awarded the platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating of the U.S. Green Building Council through this partnership.
In addition to his architectural and planning practice, Kappe has enjoyed a long career as an educator. He entered the teaching profession in the mid-1960s as an instructor at the University of Southern California (USC). In 1967, Bernard Zimmerman, a landscape architect at California Polytechnic University, Pomona (CalPoly), approached him about creating an architecture program there. Kappe built a successful program based on the principle of experimentation, but left the school in 1972 as a result of fundamental differences with the dean. Along with a group of like-minded faculty and students, he founded the avant-garde New School, later renamed Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). Kappe encouraged invention, exploration, and criticism among his students, integrating courses in the social and behavioral aspects of architecture into the design curriculum. His central interests in urban issues, technology and environmental response concerns remained at the forefront of the program until postmodernism began to dominate architectural discourse in the 1980s. Kappe stepped down from his director position in 1987, though he continued to teach there and at USC.

Processing History

In 2011 with grant funding from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), Laura Dominguez and Suzanne Noruschat processed the collection and created the inventory under the supervision of Ann Harrison.
The processing of the collection remains preliminary. Drawings in flatfile folders 174**, 189**, 252**-252A**, 267**, 269**-270**, 289**, as well as Rolls 25** - 26** need conservation treatment for the removal of adhesives. Also some materials in Series III are water-damaged.

The papers of Kappe's partner, Rex Lotery, are held by the Art, Design & Architecture Museum of the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Ray Kappe papers offer comprehensive coverage of his long and varied career, which began in the 1950s and encompassed roles as architect, planner, and educator. The archive highlights Kappe's role in furthering the strong California tradition of designing buildings in tune with nature, of experimenting with prefabricated building components and modular planning, and of addressing such issues as sustainability. The collection is therefore a valuable resource for studying important developments in post-war California modernism, including the development of what is today known as "green" architecture. The collection is also a useful resource for studying the recent history of architectural education, as Kappe directed programs at both California Polytechnic University, Pomona and Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), one of the country's most influential and experimental schools of architecture.
The project records in Series I form the core of the collection. Representing the first 50 years of Kappe's career, the series encompasses the majority of the architect's oeuvre. Included here is Kappe's independent work, as well as the projects of the firms Kahn Kappe Lotery Architects Planners and Kahn Kappe Lotery and Boccato Architects Planners. The archive does not contain Kappe's more recent work initiated or completed after 2003, such as the energy-efficient residences designed for Steve Glenn's LivingHomes. Comprising over 300 executed and unexecuted projects ranging from large and small residences to office buildings and parks, the archive holds drawings and models, in addition to sketches, photographs, and project files, and it provides documentation on major projects from the early, middle, and later phases of Kappe's career. Included, for instance, is the groundbreaking house Kappe designed for his own family in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles in 1965, which heralded the architect's expert use of post-and-beam construction and an elevated design system that allowed the building to nestle sensitively on its awkward hillside site. Represented, too, is the 1977 Borghei House (Santa Monica Canyon) in which Kappe responded to new building code restrictions by using concrete-block construction and smaller window apertures, and the 1993 Shapiro House (Santa Monica Canyon) that saw Kappe experimenting with steel frames and poured concrete while still emphasizing his core principles of uniting interior and exterior spaces and foregrounding energy efficiency and modularity. A particularly interesting portion of the archive consists of planning projects, such as those prepared for the cities of Inglewood and Compton, that highlight a commitment to revitalizing urban neighborhoods and commercial districts.
The two subsequent series document other facets of Kappe's professional life. Series II comprises his teaching materials and administrative records during his tenure at Cal Poly Pomona and SCI-Arc. This documentation reveals Kappe's interest in redefining architectural education through experimental curriculum and practice. Series III is composed of all other materials, aside from the individual project files, relating to Kappe's professional affiliations and role as a leading Southern California architect and planner. He maintained ample records of his decades-long involvement with the American Institute of Architects and with the Los Angeles Goals Program, in addition to preserving documentation of others citing his work in a variety of media. The series also highlights his interest in energy conservation, urban design, and affordable housing.

Physical Description: 355.1 linear feet (80 boxes, 368 flatfiles, 27 rolls)

Scope and Content Note

Series I documents the architectural and planning projects of Ray Kappe, as well as those of the firms of Kahn Kappe Lotery Architects Planners (1970-1974) and Kahn Kappe Lotery Boccato Architects Planners (1974-1982). Within the collaborative framework of the two architectural firms, Kappe served as principal for many of the projects included in the archive, but projects led by the other partners - Herbert Kahn, Rex Lotery and Clellio Boccato - are also included.
General documentation, architectural drawings, photographs and models form this series. General documentation files vary, but may include correspondence, reports, contracts, job bids and proposals, structural calculations, receipts, specifications, and press coverage. Occasionally a small drawing or reproduction may also be included with documentation. The architectural drawings encompass plans, elevations, sections, details, and perspectival drawings, renderings and presentation boards, both originals and reproductions. The reproduction drawings take a variety of formats including diazotypes, sepia prints, photostats, and electrostatic prints. The photographic documentation principally includes photography taken at the time projects were recently completed or under construction, and includes work by prominent architectural photographers such as Julius Shulman, Marvin Rand, and Kent Oppenheimer.
The dates given here are project dates taken from Kappe's records or from the drawings and documentation of a project, but earlier and later material may be present. Locations of projects are indicated when known. For the architectural drawings, the designation "standard" refers to examples measuring up to 37" x 49", with larger drawings indicated as oversize.
