I’m excited, honored, flattered, stoked, etc., even slightly stunned, to announce that BLDGBLOG and Chronicle Books have teamed up to host an afternoon of talks about landscape and architecture at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, from 2:30-5:00pm on Saturday, April 7th.
The line-up, as you’ll see from the flyer, above, includes John Bela & Matthew Passmore, of Rebar; Erik Davis, author of The Visionary State; Lisa Iwamoto, of both IwamotoScott Architecture and UC-Berkeley; myself, against all better judgement and in contrast to last time; and Walter Murch, three-time Oscar winner and co-author, with Michael Ondaatje, of the excellent and highly recommended book, The Conversations.
Each speaker will have 15-20 minutes in which to do their thing; you’ll have two different Q&A periods in which to ask questions, and there’ll be a 10-minute break between the third and fourth speaker. Everything will be timed to within a millisecond…
I’ll be re-posting about all this in ten days or so, however, complete with more information about each speaker, including some examples of Lisa’s work at IwamotoScott and a full-length interview with Walter Murch; so, for now, just mark your calendars! And if you’re anywhere near San Francisco, I hope to see you there. Be sure to introduce yourself; I like people.
Finally, if you want a larger version of the flyer, go here. Of course, if you like what you see, photographically, don’t miss the other work of Nicolai Morrisson (formerly known as Nicolai Grossman).
