Del Monte Center, Monterey, CA


The highly influential pavilion design approach developed most forcefully by Ernest Kump at the Foothill Junior College in Los Altos Hills, CA, (1962), set the standard for the Del Monte Center, built during the mid-to-late 1960s. This aesthetic consisted of a cluster of independent, shallowly-pitched hipped roofed building grouped around paved or landscaped grounds. Before the Foothill project, however, Warnecke used this design partifor his Stanford University Bookstore and adjacent Post Office in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
