Designing the New Bay Bridge East Span
Public Lecture on November 29, 2012
From the single, elegant tower to its unique asymmetric profile, the
Self-Anchored Suspension Span of the new San Francisco-Oakland Bay
Bridge is a showcase of innovative design.
Come meet the architects behind this iconic structure at the second
installment of the Joseph Nicoletti Lecture Series about the San
Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Join Clive Endress, senior landscape
architect with Caltrans, and Don MacDonald, principal with MacDonald
Architects and the Bay Bridge project architect, on Thursday, November
29, 2012, as they discuss the design concept behind California's
largest public works project.
This event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Bay Theater at the
Aquarium of the Bay, located at Pier 39 in San Francisco. The event is
open admission; tickets/reservations are not required.
The lecture series is named after a Bay Area dean of seismic
engineering, Joseph P. Nicoletti, who recently stepped down from
several earthquake advisory panels after more than 25 years of public
service and more than 40 years in the private sector as a seismic
engineer and executive.
