founder of SCI-Arc
Ray Kappe (born August 4, 1927) is an American architect and educator. In 1972, he resigned his position as Founding Chair of the Department of Architecture at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona and along with a group of faculty and students, started what eventually came to be known as the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). In 2003, Kappe began working with LivingHomes to design modular homes.
Kappe is still actively involved in architectural theory and practice, particularly in the areas of sustainability and the prefabrication of residences.
