Anthony Grumbine & Gabriel Zamora, Instructors

Understanding an architecture style is more than recognizing its key features. To understand a style is to understand how it developed, to know the source of its forms and materials, and to articulate its inheritances and differences from other styles. With this knowledge, one can develop thoughtful, meaningful projects, and explain design choices with everyone from clients to fellow designers. 
In this illustrated talk for the novice as well as the experienced designer, Anthony Grumbine and Gabriel Zamora will cover the many styles of California architecture. From the 17th century Spanish Hacienda, to the Victorian era migration of the late 1800s, to the Craftsman style, and the various and sundry Revivals of the 1920s, and beyond, join us in an exploration of the diverse influences and expressions found in California's architecture.

Anthony Grumbine is an architect and principal at Harrison Design, where he has worked since 2007 after finishing a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Notre Dame.  Understanding and working with a variety of architecture styles has always been a fundamental part of Anthony’s passion.  Whether he is working with historians from the City of Santa Barbara, writing articles, teaching courses, or working on historic buildings, Anthony is involved with understanding, learning from, and building upon the past.  Anthony currently serves on the City of Santa Barbara’s Historic Landmarks Commission and on the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation. 

Gabriel Zamora is an architect and project manager with DD Ford Construction in Santa Barbara.  He has a graduate degree in classical architecture and urbanism from the University of Notre Dame where his studies focused on the interplay between architectural language and form, the role of beauty in architecture, and the power of temporary architecture to drive formal invention in the renaissance and baroque periods.  His areas of practice range from contemporary to traditional and classical design.  In 2016 Gabriel founded the Santa Paula Conservancy, an advocacy and educational organization dedicated to historic preservation and open space conservation in the Santa Clara River Valley.
