Therese Poletti, ADSC Preservation Director, will be giving a talk at SF History Days on "The Evolution of Art Deco in San Francisco: From boomtown skyscrapers, apartment towers and movie palaces of the 1920s to the public decade of the 1930s."
The talk is a whirlwind history of how the Art Deco style evolved in San Francisco during the 1920s and 1930s, including some building archetypes, motifs, and a brief discussion of the most important Bay Area architects of the era. It will be in the main floor theater.
