Homer Delawie (1927 - 2009)

“Architecture is a way of life. If not, you shouldn’t be doing it”
– Homer Delawie November 2002.

As luck would have it Homer Delawie enlisted in the US Navy at age 17, two weeks prior to Japanese surrender. Following his short tenure in the military, Delawie returned to fire fighting, a job he held while in high school. While challenging, Homer left his forestry work to graduate with his degree in architecture. Under the tutelage of George Haslin, Homer was amongst a small group of graduates, from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, in 1951.

With a progressive, contemporary, foundation, Delawie was already thinking differently than his Beaux-Arts colleagues leaving UC Berkeley at the time. Homer recalls, “I was already thinking about terrain, environments and how people lived.”

Only after Homer Delawie decided to devote his life to architecture did he learn of Mies van der Rohe and ‘modern’. At Cal Poly all professors were ‘modern.’ George Haslin led architecture students on field trips to Los Angeles to meet practicing architects, visit architectural practices and see the Case Study House program.

Following a short stint as partner with Lloyd Ruocco, Delawie went solo in 1961. Designing his own office near Old Town State Park (still standing), Homer’s office grew in size and scope for decades.

“The great thing about architecture, is getting to know everything about the client” - Homer Delawie, September 2002
