In conjunction with UCSB Reads 2023, Silvia Perea, Curator of the Architecture and Design Collection (ADC) at UCSB’s AD&A Museum, will lead a behind-the-scenes tour of the Collection plus a special tour of Genius Loci: Domesticity and Identity in Southern California, an exhibition celebrating the Collection's 60th anniversary.

This exhibition features a selection of ten single-family home projects from the AD&A Museum’s Architecture and Design Collection (ADC) that convey the effervescent creativity permeating Southern California’s architectural production during the 20th century. Unifying the selected houses is the strong sense of place that their respective designs forge by responding ingeniously to their context, whether natural or historic.
