Mingei International Museum through March 15, 2015

During the centennial of the 1915 Panama–California Exposition, Mingei International Museum is celebrating, but not by looking back with nostalgia. It’s zeroing in on the cutting edge of architecture with the ongoing exhibition Three on the Edge, featuring photographs of works by starchitects James Hubbell, Kendrick Kellogg, and Wallace Cunningham. These longtime friends and associates are influenced heavily by the landscape and materials of Southern California and Baja. Rolling hills and canyons, the wide ocean, and abundant light give way to seductive silhouettes and imaginative shapes. Three on the Edge highlights many of the trio’s site-specific designs, one being Cunningham’s Wing House in Rancho Santa Fe, shown here. The S-shaped house was featured in the December 2002 issue of Architectural Digest.

Three on the Edge is part of Mingei’s exhibition series, American Icons: Celebrating Folk Art, Craft and Design from Coast to Coast.
