The Los Altos History Museum has scheduled a series of programs to complement its latest exhibition, “A Place to Call Home: Two Centuries of California Living,” which runs through Oct. 6.
• 1-3-p.m. July 21: “The Home of the Future.” A panel comprising an architect, a builder, an educator and a landscape architect will discuss what homes of the future will look like, the features they will incorporate and what cities will look like.
Moderated by Gary Hedden, member of GreenTown Los Altos and the Los Altos Environmental Commission, the panel will include Robert Cormia, whose research at Foothill College includes global warming and energy policy; Tom Klope, who opened his Los Altos-based landscape architecture business in 1994; local architect William J. Maston, whose firm specializes in residential and commercial retail projects, planned unit developments and site-specific master plans; and builder Sean Misskelley of Clarum Homes, who builds custom homes that minimize the use of resources.
• 1-3 p.m. Aug. 18: “Perspectives on Historic Preservation,” a panel discussion moderated by Julie Fry, exhibition team member.
• 1:30-3:30 p.m. Sept. 22: “The Evolution of the American Home,” a presentation by Jonathan Pearlman, principal of Elevation Architects and exhibition contributor. Pearlman will discuss how the many ways people live and work change their homes.
The Los Altos History Museum is located at 51 S. San Antonio Road. Hours are noon to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. Admission is free. The gardens, outdoor agricultural exhibits and picnic area are accessible at all times.
