Laguna Friends of Architecture’s Horst Noppenberger set to showcases Laguna’s famed architect Fred Briggs
Category : Laguna Beach Real Estate
Horst Noppenberger, one of today’s top architects in Laguna and a former associate of Fred’s, will be holding a retrospective on Fred Briggs who was one of the early, pioneering, modern architects in Southern California.
He was best known for completing a large body of contemporary projects that included single family homes, libraries and fire stations.
His work, while decidedly modern, is also was characterized by an eclectic approach to design which revealed his love of travel, culture and place.
His best well known projects in Laguna Beach are the Jeffries house at Rockledge, the downtown library and the fire station at the Top of the World. Fred also completed significant projects outside of Laguna Beach that helped to establish him as Architectural Digest’s top 100 architects and designers, such as the Bornstein residence in Beverly Hills and the Sahm residence in Rancho Santa Fe.
The meetup will be held at LCAD (Laguna College of Art and Design) Studio 12 at 2222 Laguna Canyon Road (on Tuesday April 23, 2013 at 6:30 PM). Go to www.lagunafriendsarch.com for directions or email Sean McCracken @ email@example.com.
