Architects on Exhibit was posted by the San Diego Metropolitan for their November 2008 online edition. Nine leading San Diego architects “that are redefining housing design, development and urbanization in the region” will feature work at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The Architects that have been selected are Teddy Cruz, Sebastián Mariscal, James Brown, James Gates, Todd Rinehart, Catherine Herbst, Lloyd Russell, Jonathan Segal and Jennifer Luce.

As residents of San Diego we love to keep up with the goings-on Downtown, especially if they pertain to something we’re passionate about… real estate and architectural design! This particular exhibition speaks to just that.

The idea began in 1982, when MCASD, then known as the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, organized a now iconic exhibition, entitled The California Condition: A Pregnant Architecture. This exhibibtion presented the work of 13 original California architects at the forefront of the field.

Now, more than 26 years later, this new exhibition, MIX: Nine San Diego Architects, is designed to mark MCASDs institutional commitment to continue to chart and support the work of innovative designers and architects. However, it is presented today with a regional focus that focuses on the emergence of a specific San Diego Condition.

The exhibition opens May 21 and runs until September 6, 2009 at the La Jolla location.
