      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.
