John Ruble, Tina Beebe, and our design team for the Restoration/Addition to Charles Moore's legendary Faculty Club at UCSB participated in the University's December 1 Study Day. This is a wide-ranging symposium on Charles Moore, the late 1960's, and the iconic building. Organized by UCSB Art Historian Volker Welter, the event included noted Moore partners and collaborators Donlyn Lyndon, Richard Peters, and client David Rodes. Moore Ruble Yudell's plans for the expansion, reuse, and restoration of this seminal Landmark will include 30 additional guest rooms and new landscape by Landscape Architect Susan Van Atta.
On November 14, 2012, Principal James Mary O'Connor presents "From Santa Monica to Sweden and China," an AIA LA Urban Design Committee Presentation.

Take a creepy graveyard, mix with Shrunken Head cocktails, throw in a few bewitching costumes and what have you got? Why, it turns out to be Moore Ruble Yudell’s Halloween Party.
Festivities included a spirited costume contest won by Lani Lee – who gave new meaning to being “all lit up.” Other contenders were the Alladin (Jed), Will Ferrell Cheerleading Guy (Bernie), Foxy Brown (Victoria), Medusa, (James) , Bad-Toothed Witch (Carissa), Lenny Kravitz (Takuji), Bartending Witch (Katie), Accidental Erkel (Alex), Hugh Hefner (Tristan), Zorette (Amy), Plush Airplane (Ruth), Super Mario Toad (Toru) and perhaps the Ambivalent Witch (Anne). Lady Gaga was expected but did not make an appearance.
Pumpkin carvers let the pulp fly into renditions of LeCorbusier, Obama, Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Wood Grain (the Winning Entry), a House and Lyrical Pumpkin….
On the younger side, a little Ladybug was joined by the Little Mermaid, Pirate, Spiderman and a real Fairy. Ernie rounded out the outfits with his sporty Turtle wrap.
And if you bump into something with beady, red blinking eyes in the shed, don’t worry. It’s only Charlene.
Beginners joined forces with longtime golfers to form teams that used the best shot per group for scoring. The competition was even hotter than the weather, which was remarkably hot and humid. The winning team scored a 2-under par, and included Carissa Shrock, Colins Lozada, Ismar Enriquez and Alberto Reano. Some players brought their cricket and baseball skills to the golf course, while others brought their dogs. The next golf outing is tentatively scheduled for January 2013, when cooler temperatures will hopefully prevail.
Moore Ruble Yudell exhibits at the annual Society for College and University Planner's (SCUP) 47th Annual, International Conference in Chicago, IL. Our booth display included a model of the UC Berkeley Student Community Center.
Moore Ruble Yudell helped sponsor the annual AIA exhibition 2x8. For the second year in a row, the show was held at the A+D Museum. Carissa Shrock, Associate, Ismar Enriquez, Toru Narita, and Clover Linne from Moore Ruble Yudell helped with the organization, installation, and sponsorship for the exhibition. Victoria Lam, Director of Graphic Design designed the exhibition graphics.
2X8 is an annual exhibition sponsored by the AIA|LA, showcasing exemplary student work from architecture and design institutions throughout California. Each of the participating academic programs select two projects that exemplify its core vision. The students’ design work is judged by a noteworthy panel of architects and designers who then announce the winners at the exhibition opening and convene in a forum to discuss the award-winning work. This year's jury was comprised of Annie Chu, AIA, David Montalba, AIA and Randall Stout, FAIA.
“This year marks 2X8’s 10th anniversary and we wanted to shake things up a little and involve not only the students, but also a great deal of the faculty,” said Ryan Gobuty, Assoc. AIA and the 2012 2X8 Committee Chair. “Last year we sent a request for proposals to all architecture and design schools statewide, received many submissions and after careful consideration and interviews, designated Matthew Gillis, a teacher at SCI-Arc, Woodbury and Otis, as the designer to create this year’s exhibition. We are very excited about his design as well as its visual and emotional impact.”
The jury commented that Gillis’ submission was an original concept that had the flexibility to fit in many different spaces. More importantly, the design supports—rather than takes away from— the student’s work.
This is an annual event sponsored by the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition that encourages the bicycle as an option for commuting to work. Moore Ruble Yudell sponsored a pit stop along the bicycle route, offering snacks and refreshments. 30% of the office participated in riding their bikes to work, resulting in an estimated total of 280 miles travelled by bike.
