Thornton Ladd (1924 -2010)


1020 Prospect, La Jolla

Thornton Ladd was born on January 29, 1924. He was only 24 and still a student at USC when he designed the Lyon Residence, his first commission, in 1948. Photographer Julius Shulman photographed the home in 1950 and later returned in the 1990’s to say that the Lyon House was one of Ladd’s finest designs. 20 years later he designed the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena. For much of his career he worked alongside John Kelsey as Ladd & Kelsey Architects. He passed away on Friday, January 29, 2010 in Ojai, California.
