Ray Kappe is an award winning architect and educator in Southern California. In 1972, he resigned his position as Founding Chair of the Department of Architecture at California Polytechnic State University, Pomona and along with a group of faculty and students, started what eventually came to be known as the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc).

As of 2007, Kappe is still actively involved in architectural theory and practice, particularly in the areas of sustainability and the prefabrication of residences.
