February 24 - The La Jolla Historical Society's offering, The Contemporary Architects Making History 2011 Lecture Series begins this Thursday with founder Keith York. Keith York, who also happens to be a member of the San Diego Architecture Foundation's Board of Directors, will engross La Jolla locals in evaluating their architectural legacy and will aid them in understanding that their area's design future lies in their hands.

York stated that he is going to draw attention to some of the great and not so great things (in terms of architecture) that have occurred in La Jolla. He added that he is going to begin his lecture by showing slides, survey of the city's architecture, and through his individualistic opinions, he hopes to solicit a response from the locals and get them to give a say about the city's future architecture.
York noted that he is not an architect but a historian and that he will be assessing the contribution of others and not his own. York added that his views are generally "a people's view of architecture. As the rest of the lecturers are architect and they are going to be discussing sighting, budgets, and materials, York is definitely a stand out as he is the only lecturer that is going to give something from a different standpoint.

To say that Keith York is a multi-tasker is like saying Stan Getz was a good jazz artist.
Let me give you more background on Keith. His official job title is Director of Programming for KPBS TV in San Diego. Basically, what this means, is that he plans which shows will air, and when. Keith is also the person one would see if they had a video they wanted to shop for airplay. In addition to programming, he's in the position to help people produce their shows, come up with budgeting, help with fund-raising and so on and so forth. In recent years he has been at the helm of a new high definition television channel for PBS (you have to have a HD TV to get it), the one and only of its kind in the country. Is it any wonder Keith has won every, single national programming award in public television? Some of them more than once? Most recently, he was awarded the honor of Innovator of the Year.
At San Diego State University, Keith teaches media and communication classes in between his work at KPBS, which works out well since the television station sits on the edge of the campus and the commute isn't an issue.
As for his record company, Silver Girl, in the last couple of months they've released four albums and continue to expand their roster of artists, along with tour dates. Not only does he produce the records, he promotes them as well. I remember "helping" one afternoon, to silkscreen t-shirts for one of his bands. Luckily, Keith's main room is very spacious, almost loft-like, because that day it had about fifty shirts drying all over the place. His were good, mine turned out a little gloppy, it was my first time. I've noticed he hasn't asked me to help again.
Keith is very detail oriented and when he decides to do something he doesn't guess. He goes to the library. Meticulous with his research, Keith found the original plans, poured over vintage photographs, and made many a phone call to ensure that the restoration would be true to Ellwood's vision. He collects modern furniture and art with the same zeal and can often be seen with his portable scanner amid the stacks capturing images for further study. I have to add here that one great thing about having Keith for a friend, is the fact that, at his fingertips, he has access to a wide variety of information.
I asked Keith if he could pin point the exact time when he officially became enamored with modern design. He said it was a number of years back and he was in the market for a desk. He stopped in at Boomerang (in its previous location on Park Boulevard) and, though he was totally unfamiliar with the mid-century style, was taken by a George Nelson desk. After leaving, he pondered the potential acquisition and decided to go back and buy it... but it was gone. However, his interest was not and the seed was firmly planted when his neighbor offered him two Eames Zenith chairs. Original originals.
Currently, Keith has begun to expand his collection, taking an avid interest in the art and accessories of the period. He tells me one group in particular has caught his attention.
I asked for more information and, naturally, Keith had a book handy. After reading several paragraphs, I took one of the pottery pieces in hand to have a look at the underside. There was a yellow dot sticker along with the artist's name, year it was made, and the price. It was bought through the artist's estate. I told him that he forgot to remove the sticker, and he told me it was left on intentionally.... for future documentation. Did I mention Keith is detail oriented?
