Discussion UCSB Faculty Club Commentary

"Locally, the Faculty Club at Santa Barbara is looked on as a late reiteration of the Spanish Colonial Revival style. It does, indeed, exhibit some of the confusing characteristics of this style, but more in terms of its décor than in the building's formal qualities. These are as contemporary as the 'Supergraphics' which decorate the recreation changing-rooms. It is an idiosyncratic piece of design, cleverly integrated into a unity of disparate parts. It represents a refreshingly new and different approach to public architecture and holds in regard a certain kind of university ambiance. Besides catering for the club-room and dining functions of the Faculty Club it also contains a small library and, around a delightful courtyard, a few guest-rooms.
