Kappe (Ray) Papers
Series I. Project records, 1954-2003, undated 355.1 Linear Feet (80 boxes, 370 flatfiles, 27 rolls)
Series I.C. Kahn Kappe Lotery Boccato Architects Planners, 1974-1978
The projects of Kahn Kappe Lotery Boccato Architects Planners form this subseries. In 1974, the earlier firm of Kahn Kappe Lotery Architects Planners transitioned when Clelio Boccato, who had previously been an associate, became a partner. In the same year, Herbert Kahn started a private practice in Santa Cruz, although he continued to work on the firm's Los Angeles projects. In 1976, Kahn opened a Santa Cruz office of Kahn Kappe Lotery Boccato Architects Planners, before leaving the partnership entirely in 1978. During this period from 1974 to 1978, the firm continued the earlier emphasis on on urban design and planning, including several projects aimed at revitalizing the cities of Inglewood and Compton and studies addressing transportation issues, such as the Downtown Peoplemover. The firm also created a small body of residential, institutional and industrial designs. While the firm's working methodology was collaborative overall, different partners would take the lead on projects. The partner (or associate) chiefly responsible for the design of a project is indicated when known.
