University of California, Berkeley: An Architectural Tour and Photographs by Harvey Helfand

Front Cover
Princeton Architectural Press, 2002 - Architecture - 360 pages
This book "offers an insider's view of the first school in the University of California system. The Beaux-Arts master plan by John Galen Howard created a classic setting for early buildings by Bernard Maybeck, Julia Morgan, and Greene & Greene, and later buildings by John Carl Warnecke, Edward Larrabee Barnes, Charles Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, William Turnbull, and landscape architecture by Lawrence Halprin. The campus is unique for its breadth of architectural works by California designers. [This book], featuring over 100 buildings, is fascinating to read and an easy-to-use companion for a walking tour. With a foreword by Berkeley's Chancellor Robert M. Berdahl, and striking photographs by author Harvey Helfand, this is the definitive guide to the history and architecture of the first public institution of higher learning in California"--Inside front cover.
