The Gamble House

Greene and Greene were among Southern California's most influential architects of the early 20th century, forging a distinctive style that was an expression of California's landscape and culture while reflecting international themes in its design and materials. Charles Greene once declared himself "in sympathy with the William Morris movement" to an Arts-and-Crafts-loving client; this sympathy manifested itself in the firm's work over time as they explored a regional expression for the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement.

Jennifer Trotoux is an architectural historian and historic preservation planner and has served
as the Director of Collections and Interpretation at the Gamble House in Pasadena, California, since 2017. The 1908 house is a National Historic Landmark and Greene and Greene's best-known work, retaining its original furnishings and decorative arts features designed by the architects.
