A Look at John R. Mock's Mid Century Architecture

John R. Mock spent 60 years in San Diego working on hundreds of Mid Century Modern architecture designs. Initially he worked for Frank L Hope and Associates, the most prolific as well as oldest San Diego architectural firm, working on projects such as the Timken Art Museum in Balboa Park.

In 1963 he started his own firm, Hendrick and Mock Architects with his friend Bill Hendrick. From 1963 to 1994 the firm maintained a general yet comprehensive practice. The Firm completed 686 projects of which 417 have been constructed. Over 100 of them were during the Mid-century period (until 1969). they did everything from Apartments, Office Buildings, and Hotels, to Restaurants, Navy Barracks and Custom Homes.

One of the homes, The Hindman Residence was featured in the June 1963 San Diego (and Point) Magazine. It also won the Grand Prize Design Award at the Pacific Coast Builders Convention. Two other Custom Homes were placed on the San Diego Country Register of Historic Landmark Buildings as “highly artistic examples of significant Mid-century Modern Architecture designed by an important individual.”
