Join Heritage for the fourth installment of our Annual Lecture Series held in collaboration with DOCOMOMO/NOCA on Thursday, October 18. Paul Adamson, FAIA, will explore the work of Gardner A. Dailey, one of the Bay Area’s leading architects from the late 1920s into the 1960s and a pioneer in the development of the Second Bay Tradition style.

Despite having no formal architectural training, Dailey created an extensive and influential body of work, and his office launched the careers of other successful San Francisco architects, including Joseph Esherick. His projects include the Red Cross Headquarters (1948), the Brazil Building for the 1939 World’s Fair on Treasure Island, and Luther Burbank (now Martin Luther King) Middle School (1953). He also designed several buildings on the UC Berkeley campus, including Tolman Hall (1962).

This event will take place in the Bayside Conference Room at Pier 1 on the Embarcadero and is sponsored by Cody Anderson Wasney Architects. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the event starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $8 for Heritage members and $12 for the general public.
