PROJECT VISIT:

Stumbled across what is most likely the best Taco Bell building in the world on Saturday while visiting the beach at Pacifica.

The design is quintessentially Bay Area modernist, however I have not been able to track down who designed it. Any help in finding this out would be appreciated!

The exposed super structure, dune like form and mellow weather timber allow this building to sit lightly in its beach front location - although a family run fish and chip shop would be more fitting!

From last weekend's venture into the #Eichler abyss. The x-100 steel prototype house designed by A. Quincy Jones.

So glad to visit Berkeley modernist home of Donald and Helen Olsen, designed by master of Bay Area Modernism Donald Olsen in 1954. Photo by @nobeltruong #helenolsen #bayareamodernism #modernism #californiamodernism #modernarchitecture #berkeley

X-100 Eichler House in San Mateo by A. Quincy Jones. The house was a prototype using steel for the primary structure. It was designed as a demonstration/marketing house to bring people to this (at the time) tucked away enclave of Eichlers). Pierre Koenig also worked on the project within the offices of Jones & Emmons. #X-100 #eichler #eichlerX-100 #aquincyjones #jonesandemmons #modernism #bayareamodernism #californiamodernism #midcenturymodernism #midcenturymodern #pierrekoenig #sanmateo

PRESIDIO ARCHITECTURE WALK:

STOP #5

The final stop on our exploration was to Eric Mendelsohn's Russell House c.1951. The house is the German architects only in the USA.

The house is best known for its circular sitting room after the master bedroom which commands unparalleled views of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge.

STOP #4

Joseph Esherick's Goldman House c.1951 was our next stop. This house is typical of Esherick's 'Packing the Box' style.

The house is currently undertaking substantial internal renovations by @jenniferweissarchitecture so it will be interesting to see the end result soon!

STOP #3

We found this wonderful Joseph Esherick House c. 1963. This house is a great example of the shingled Bay Area modernist style.

The house has amazing views of the Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge. This would most likely be the reason for the contracted ground floor and expanded ceiling heights of the second level to accentuate the view.

A field trip to the Paul/Harrison Residence by Aaron Green, 1957. Green was a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright and his associate for many of his California projects post war through Wright's death. The Pauls wanted a Japanese house. What resulted was a fusion of Wrightian ideas with Japanese sensibility. He used a hexagonal grid similar to the near by Hanna House from 20 years earlier. #aarongreen #paulresidence #paulharrisonresidence #stanfordarchitecture #californiamodernism #modernism #modernarchitecture #architecture #bayareamodernism #midcenturymodern #stanfordarchitecture

Willi Gutmann "Two Columns with Wedge", 1971. The wedge is small and behind a fern so it's not in the picture. #embarcadero #publicart #bayareamodernism #swissmodern
