DS+R in the news. . .

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Here are some articles about the projects I’ve been working on. . .

Berkeley:

San Francisco Chronicle: “Cal Museum Lays Foundation. . . “

A/N: “Diller Scofidio + Renfro Plants Flag at Berkeley”

And Broad:

NYTimes: “Eli Broad Is Said to Pick a Museum Site.”

LATimes: “L.A.’s Peripatetic Patron.”

Also, SFMoma, though I wasn’t involved:

SFMoma’s web-interview

(speaking of which, did you know that Mario Botta, the architect of the current SFMoma building, once worked for Le Corbusier? You don’t hear that much of people who once worked for the ol’ Corb, and I wonder why?)

I lived in San Francisco and various locations in the Bay Area for 3 years after college, and for a while told people that I was from California, fond as I was of it, and California being the first place I settled as an adult. So it’s been a nice to have a hand in working on some projects that may change the landscape a bit over there. That’s all I can really say.
