Modernism at Cal

Berkeley is essentially the opposite of everything that UCSD represents in terms of architecture.  The campus has an extensive heritage of historical buildings dating back to the second half of the 19th century. I didn't take any photos of those. 

UCSD: A Built History of Modernism

One of the greatest collections of modern architecture in the country is right in my backyard. The University of California at San Diego is like a museum of modern architecture, from the 60s through the present day. And what makes it even more unique is that there is not a single example of traditional architecture on the campus!

Spent the weekend up in Sonoma recently to do a photography project for the Mingei Museum. I'll post more details about that project as I'm able, but don't want to ruin the surprise...
