KENDRICK (KEN) BANGS KELLOGG (1934-)

Kellogg was born in San Diego CA and grew up in Mission Beach. He studied for five years at San Diego State University, the University of Colorado, the University of Southern California, and the University of California at Berkeley. In 1955 he met Frank Lloyd Wright during a trip to Phoenix and Scottsdale with other architecture students. Kellogg came away from the brief encounter inspired. He completed his math and engineering courses and left Berkeley without a degree. He returned to San Diego and worked in the offices of Sim Bruce Richards, Dale Naegle, and Frederick Liebhart. His first design was a house in Mission Beach area of San Diego in 1957. By 1964, he had obtained his California architectural license and designed and built five residences.

Kellogg is an innovator of organic architecture. He founded the Organic Architecture Charitable Foundation in 1997. He was also a community planner in San Diego, where he was responsible for instituting a planned district ordinance allowing compatible neighborhood character without inhibiting the diversity of any architectural style.
