Signature Architects by Dave Weinstein
Book DescriptionThis book fleshes out the history of Bay Area architecture by featuring 15 lesser known architects. It includes houses to visit and glossary of terms. When talk turns to architects who have made their mark in the San Francisco Bay Area, it often stops after two names - Bernard Maybeck and Julia Morgan. Widely admired, they are the stuff of legend. In a new book on the "signature" styles of Bay Area architecture, author and architecture critic Dave Weinstein takes aim at some of the most important yet lesser-known Bay Area architects. What began as an outgrowth of articles he had written for the "San Francisco Chronicle" about preserving historic buildings is now an in-depth work on the architecture of an area that is unlike any other. The fifteen architects profiled here were chosen not because they are the best the area has produced (though several are) but because their stories, taken together, provide a solid history of Bay Area residential architecture.
