By the end of the second World War, a regional style of architecture and design had emerged in California. This arose from European influence and responded to California’s special conditions: a benevolent climate, informal lifestyle, and pervasive optimism. Hear about Californian architecture and design from Wendy Kaplan, Department Head, Decorative Arts and Design, Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Wendy Kaplan is co-curator of the exhibition California Design 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way, organised by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The exhibition opens at the Queensland Art Gallery on 2 November.
