The House of Hospitality is one of the jewsls of Balboa Park, containing unique architecture, artifacts and lighting fixtures. It's hard to believe that until 1990, its beautiful antique lighting, designed by architect Richard Requa, was constructed from compressed paper in a Hollywood prop shop. The lighting, and even the House of Hospitality itself, was originally intended to attract visitors from all over the world to San Diego. However, they were only intended to be temporary.

Gibson and Gibson Antique lighting, recreated the lighting fixtures which can be found throughout the House of Hospitality today.

These pieces currently on display at the San Diego International Airport until December 2015 include original compressed paper fixtures and their modern reproductions, preserving the unique beauty and history of the original designs. Each piece reflects the essence of an actual chandelier found in the House of Hospitality.
