Re: “The Bay Is Brutal: A Love Letter To Concrete and Brutalism in the Bay Area

Joseph Esherick is also credited for Wurster Hall's design, with Vernon DeMars and Don Olsen. Good, playful piece -- those of us who spent years either studying or working in a brutalist building, for me that's Wurster Hall, particularly will appreciate the cognitive dissonance that brutalist structures create in their inhabitants. I love/hate Wurster Hall, and there certainly not enough character spaces for me to tell you the many ways. However it remains the Jungian archetype of architectural building form -- forever imprinted in my subconscious as a beautiful, evocative, leaky, cold space. As I write, I think of all nighters at the drafting board almost three decades ago, and really want an espresso from Strada (Roma). I will be curious to see what happens to Campi's celestial wonder, the old BAMPFA, a seismically challenged structure (google "non-ductile concrete"). Campi took his inspiration for the building from the heavens.
