John C. Warnecke: Fascinating Life and Architectural Career
- This video is about John Carl Warnecke, class of 1941, a Stanford football tackle who went on to become one of the most successful architects in America from the 1960s to the 1980s. Turner explained the importance of Warnecke’s work, especially his pioneering role in the development of “Contextualism” in architecture—as seen, for example, in his work in Washington, D.C., for John F. Kennedy. Warnecke was the president’s favorite architect, and his friendship with JFK was examined—as well as his remarkable relationship with Jacqueline Kennedy following the president’s death. Another focus of the talk was the important, but little-known, role that Warnecke played in the development of Stanford’s architecture after World War II.
