This self-guided exhibit celebrates the centennial of architect William F. Cody and his seminal contribution to modern architecture. See images, photos, plans and more spanning his career; some have never previously been on display. Plus see new projects created by architecture students at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo after studying his archive housed at the school. Watch a video with curator Jo Lauria as interviewed by local architecture expert Michael Stern, as she describes the exhibit and its relevance today. This exhibition of Cody’s architecture is based on primary archival research with input from his family. Cody left behind an important legacy and his influence continues to serve as inspiration for successive generations of designers. The objects on display created by architecture students of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo are a testament to Cody’s relevance to the ongoing dialogue of architecture.
