Kappes's rather tasteful work didn't have much sway with the Morphosis contingent.

I went through Kappa house on a tour some years ago. I really wanted to buy a drawing but he growled at the idea of selling drawings as art pieces. I found his house amazing, but wondered at the use of so much glass in earthquake country. Hard to keep clean of spider webs too in all those nooks and crannies.

I was quite late in discovering Kappe's work, including (in particular) his own house, which speaks to me as few others do. I'd like to see illustrations of all
his work; the Benton house is new for me this week.


Virtually all of the thousands and thousands of photos of modernist work were taken only after a thorough cleaning of glass; nothing could ruin an image of
such a building faster than noticeably unclean glass. And, that speaks to the task facing every owner of such properties, for the entirety of their occupancy !
