Designing San Francisco: The Untold Story of How Artists and Activists Rebuilt Postwar SF
September 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0
Alison Isenberg, Professor of History and Co-Director of the Princeton Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities presents her new book Designing San Francisco, the untold story of the formative postwar decades when U.S. cities took their modern shape amid clashing visions of the future. In this pathbreaking and richly illustrated book, Isenberg shifts the focus from architects and city planners–those most often hailed in histories of urban development and design–to the unsung artists, activists, and others who played pivotal roles in rebuilding San Francisco between the 1940s and the 1970s.
