Charles Bloszies, AIA, will present his book Old Buildings, New Designs: Architectural Transformations.
The quest for sustainability will increasingly concentrate development in cities, resulting in architecture that will be a fusion of new and old forms, especially as policy incentives are implemented that encourage major additions to existing buildings. San Francisco architect Charles Bloszies will explore this topic as he presents case studies from his recently released book.
Charles Bloszies is an architect, structural engineer, writer, and educator. He is principal of an award winning practice in San Francisco engaged in merging both architectural and technical disciplines resulting in thoughtful, innovative, and economically executed work. His firm has completed various urban infill projects and major additions to old buildings in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is currently Adjunct Professor of Architecture at California College of the Arts, and has taught in the design studios at the University of California at San Diego, and the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of Old Buildings, New Designs | Architectural Transformations, published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2011.
