The city developed a national reputation for cutting edge design beginning in the 1930s when architects began experimenting with what we now call Central Valley Modernism. In the following decades, Gardner Daily, Christopher Alexander, Frank Lloyd Wright, William Wurster, Palmer and Krisel, SOM, Anshen and Allen, John Funk, Milton Pflueger, William Turnbull, and many more designed projects in the city. At the same time, some of the modernist landscape designers were active in Modesto including Lawrence Halprin, Thomas Church, and Robert Royston.
