Edward R. Bosley, Executive Director of The Gamble House, reveals the links between the architecture of Greene & Greene and their appreciation for Japanese architecture and design. Key factors include the Greenes’ education and exposure to Japanese design while students and apprentices in Boston (1888–1893), the expositions and publications that informed their developing artistic sense, and especially Charles Greene’s deeply introspective nature, which drew him towards Buddhism and other esoteric spiritual movements.

The event is held online via Zoom at 4 p.m. (PDT). Zoom link will be sent to attendees in registration confirmation email.
