Event Details

Lyra Kilston’s illustrated talk will describe how sunlight used to be considered medicinal and was frequently prescribed by doctors in measured daily doses. These ideas spread into architectural designs and the results ranged from eccentric, sun-chasing devices to sleek, modernist landmarks. The trend soon began to shape residential housing and even furniture. Kilston is the author of Sun Seekers: The Cure of California (Atelier Editions, 2019).

For adults.
