Keith York is a writer focused on unveiling the unique history of modern art and architecture in the San Diego region.As the principal of Modern San Diego, an online resource since 2004, York has collated thousands of documents, images and interviews to tell the story of the region’s modern architecture. Following his restoration of architect Craig Ellwood’s Bobertz House (1953-55) he is engaged in restoring Sim Bruce Richards’ personal residence (1957). Having made both homes widely available to tours, visitors and photographers alike he has expressed that these are two examples of the broader narrative on regional modernism.Prior to “The Sensuous Environment: Sim Bruce Richards Architect,” York curated and published catalogs for the following exhibitions “Julius Shulman: Modern San Diego”; “Julius Shulman: Modern La Jolla”; and “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Legacy in San Diego: The Taliesin Apprentices.” York also contributed a chapter to the book “Making L.A. Modern: Craig Ellwood – Myth, Man, Designer” (Rizzoli, 2018).As a residential real estate agent focused on the sales of architect-designed homes, York connects clients to homes by an array of architects and designers I have researched for years and guides them on restorative processes, historical designation and Mills Act protections. Julius Shulman (1910 – 2009) help launch the profession of architectural photography in the years following World War II. Through publications, exhibits and personal appearances his work ushered in a new appreciation for modern architecture years after he captured images in Los Angeles of the work of Richard Neutra, Charles Eames, Raphael Soriano and Pierre Koenig among others. His archive is now located at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles.
