Summary Ray Kappe is at the forefront of prefabricated, sustainable design today. This film explores Kappe's thinking behind his domestic work, beginning with a tour of the hillside house built for his family in 1967 in Pacific Palisades, and then traces the trajectory of his career leading to his two sustainable, prefabricated houses designed for LivingHomes in 2006-2007. Additionally, Founder and CEO of LivingHomes, Steve Glenn, discusses Kappe's contribution in creating the first house in the U.S. with a LEED platinum rating. Finally, architect Thom Mayne places Kappe's architectural and educational achievements in context with his influences on Los Angeles architects.
