Point Loma Architecture Series: The Work Of Modernist Architect Robert Mosher


Recently Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty Agents Caroline Glasner and Susan Diamond filled the Point Loma Assembly for the fourth lecture in the Point Loma Architecture Series. The special architectural lecture focused on the work of Modernist Architect Robert Mosher and featured a round-table style discussion with James Alcorn, AIAE and historical property attorney Marie Burke Lia along with members of the community.


Modernist Architect Robert Mosher

One of San Diego’s first generation of post-war modern architects, Robert Mosher, was co-founder of La Jolla Town Council, designer of the Coronado Bridge, west wing of the San Diego Museum of Art, and numerous other commercial and residential projects throughout San Diego. Mosher died of natural causes on July 26, 2015 at his home in La Jolla, California, at the age of 94.

 According to Larry Hoeksema, principal and former president of Architects Mosher Drew, the firm Mosher founded with his business partner Roy Drew, “Mosher’s view of modernism was much more about the quality of the human spirit. The way people interact and move through and around (a building) was something they were very much concerned about.”


The Point Loma Architecture Lecture Series was created by Caroline Glasner and Susan Diamond of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty to explore the architectural history of Point Loma with experts in the field. Caroline and Susan have extensive experience listing and selling historical and architectural properties and have combined their passion for these properties and their love of the Point Loma community to create this lecture series. “Our goal is to enhance community awareness of these local and important treasures while bringing neighbors together,” says Glasner. “We are thankful to have the opportunity to share our love of architectural history with our Point Loma community.”
