The 75th year celebration of the Golden Gate Bridge had its grand city-wide “kick-off” on May 27 and continues with events throughout the year.
Join award winning architect and bridge designer Donald MacDonald for a talk and presentation on San Francisco’s most important landmark. MacDonald’s commemorative book focuses on the bridge’s elaborate engineering, construction, and history discussing everything from its stunning “international orange” color to the surprising ancient and modern influences on its design.
Accompanied by seventy of MacDonald’s own illustrations, this book is an accessible and informative study of the bridge, and an inside look at the combination of aesthetics and geometry that make the Golden Gate Bridge a legend. A must–have for anyone interested in architecture, or just in love with San Francisco.
