Event Details

Join Heyday in celebrating the publication of Cityscapes 2 in the iconic Ferry Building (on page 100 of the new book!). There will be short remarks from John King and publisher Malcolm Margolin as well as refreshments and books for sale.

Event will be in the Port Commission Hearing Room on the second floor.

About the book:
Part pocket guide, part history, and part architectural primer, this is the companion piece to urban design critic John King’s Cityscapes: San Francisco and Its Buildings. In epigrammatic prose and with his detailed full-color photographs, King highlights fifty structures that tell the story of San Francisco through architecture. Included are landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, and the Hallidie Building -- but King also takes notice of less celebrated structures that embody the politics, architectural fads, and cultural values of the eras in which they were conceived. A fresh take on the familiar, Cityscapes 2 shows us how to read the structures around us to better understand this multilayered and ever-changing city. More>
