Above piece: The Future Perfect
This weekend I was fortunate to have two passes to the FOG Design + Art Fair at Fort Mason in San Francisco, so I brought my friend who’s currently attending the Masters of Architecture program at CCA. I figured she’d be a great person to geek out over some good design & art with, and she was! We had a blast, and found the event incredibly inspiring. Here are some highlights from the day (both inside and outside the fair):
The weather was PERFECTION on Saturday. I’m so glad I brought my camera along. You can see Alcatraz in the distance.
After taking many photos of the water and generally marveling at how beautiful it was outside, we finally found our way into the event. The above piece, “Girls at War” by Beth Katleman, was pretty incredible in person.
Pieces in the Ratio 3 booth (a local San Francisco gallery).
Airbnb built miniatures based on real vacation rental properties available through their site.
Quick coffee & snack break, indulging in goodies from Jane (hey, favorite cafe on Fillmore Street!).
The piece above and the interactive installation below are works by Benjamin Rollins Caldwell.
We attended Craig Dykers’ talk on the Architecture of Engagement and the new SFMOMA Expansion. Craig Dykers is a principal architect at Snøhetta, the Oslo-based architecture & design office working on SFMOMA as well as the new Warriors Pavilion near the Bay Bridge. It was inspiring to see Snøhetta’s plans for SFMOMA, and the philosophies & research behind those plans, and fun to get some sneak peeks of how the space will evolve.
We left just in time to enjoy golden hour – which made the already beautiful day look even more spectacular.
