Event Details

Join us for a lecture with Jan Furey Muntz, Architect and Historian, on the Early Architecture of Myron Hunt.

Myron Hunt was a relatively unknown but major architect of the period. His life work comprised over 500 buildings and
he survived the Depression, two World Wars and moving across the country for his wife’s health at the beginning of his career. If you live in Pasadena, you probably unknowingly experience his work in your daily life. He designed elegant, functional spaces that are still very much in use and now celebrating Centennial Birthdays such as Huntington Hospital, Polytechnic School, Occidental College, Pasadena Central Library, Huntington Library, Langham Hotel and Casita del Arroyo. All of these buildings have interesting back stories. We will place Hunt in time, follow his education and development and discuss the range of his major buildings and residences including the most resilient and noteworthy, the Rose Bowl. His Work also intersected directly with Frank Lloyd Wright, George Ellery Hale and Henry Huntington.
