San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for this panel discussion exploring the continued impact of the visionary Panama Pacific International Exposition architects, including Bernard Maybeck and Willis Polk. Can their ideals and vision still be seen today? What is the relevancy of their extant work in today’s context and the lessons we can take from that? How do the challenges of then and now compare? How do we look at public space differently for audiences today? John King, San Francisco Chronicle urban design critic, will moderate this discussion. He is joined by Hans Baldauf of BCV Architects, Marc L’Italien of EHDD, and Jay Turnbull of Page Turnbull.
In Partnership with SF Heritage
Doors open 5:45PM
Discussion begins approximately 6:05PM
