Description - San Francisco Architects by Francesc Zamora
The San Francisco Bay Area has a dynamic architectural scene with buildings and spaces reflecting a mix of geographical, cultural, technological, and ecological influences. The works of early generations of architects such as Bernard Maybeck, Julia Morgan, William Wurster, Joseph Esherick, and William Turnbull, as well as the landscape architecture of Thomas Church have set a precedent for the contemporary architecture that continues to shape the built environment of the Bay Area. Like their predecessors', the works of today's local architects show great respect and deference for the region's geographical qualities, climate, topography, and culture, resulting in remarkable spaces sensibly connected with their environment. Close contact with the landscape, innovative use of sustainable strategies and materials along with social imperative to make good design available to all people and communities contribute to the preservation of an inherently San Francisco and Bay Area expression. AUTHOR: Francesc Zamora Mola studied interior design and architecture in Barcelona and then with innovative architecture firms San Francisco. He is the author of numerous architecture books, including The Wood Book (788499369723). 300 colour photographs
