1000 Mariposa, Berkeley

Walter Popenuck spent almost his entire career as the chief architect for the Lawrence Berkeley Lab facility so his name is not as familiar as many of his contemporaries’ despite the sizable impact he had on a certain portion of our build environment. Even so, it is clear from the home that he built for his family that he was an immensely creative and talented designer. Popenuck studied architecture at MIT when William Wurster was the Dean there so he was no stranger to Bay Region design, but it was also a time when Alvar Aalto and Buckminster Fuller were teaching there as well and their influences are likewise apparent in his home.
