2016 Semi-Annual Meeting
Tuesday, January 26, 6:30PM-8PM
Union Bank (Bank of California Building)
400 California Street, San Francisco

Executive Director Mike Buhler will provide an overview of Heritage’s recent activities; special guest John King, urban design critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, will present.

As a follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize finalist Cityscapes, King’s new book Cityscapes 2: Reading the Architecture of San Francisco highlights fifty structures that tell the story of San Francisco, including less celebrated structures that embody the politics, fads, and cultural values of the eras in which they were conceived. Among King’s favorites is our meeting venue, the Bank of California Building (1908), hailed in Heritage’s 1979 book Splendid Survivors as “the finest banking temple in a city of banking temples.”

Cityscapes 2: Reading the Architecture of San Francisco will be available for purchase.

Free for Heritage members; $10 for the general public.
