Erik Davis, Walter Murch, more at BLDG BLOG San Francisco

From Erik Davis (author of the Joanna Newsom profile in Arthur V1 N25):

“This Saturday in SF I will be participating in an eclectic symposium brought to you by Chronicle Books and Geoff Manaugh’s supernifty BLDGBLOG:

when: Sat 4.7 (2:30-5pm)
where: California College of the Arts (1111 8th St, 415.551.9210)
price: FREE

BLDGBLOG’s founding editor Geoff Manaugh has pulled together a group of speakers as comprehensive and engaging as his design blog. This interdisciplinary conversation on architecture and landscape unites people from various, sometimes surprising, backgrounds. Walter Murch, film editor and sound mixer for pictures like Apocalypse Now (1979) and the Godfather trilogy, presents original research on how Rome’s Pantheon influenced Copernicus, while author Erik Davis explores mysticism and spirituality in California’s architectural landscapes. Architect Lisa Iwomoto’s show-and-tell displays her firm’s newest technologies along with digital models for housing projects, and Rebar Group founders John Bela and Matthew Passmore discuss collaborative and public design such as their COMMONspace project. “
