HERE - architecture as seen from the San Francisco Bay Region

HERE is a series of video films that look at architecture from the perspective of the San Francisco Bay Area. Most episodes examine Bay Area buildings and landscapes. Some venture to other parts of America and beyond. The first three episodes are short - from 18 to 26 minutes. The later episodes are about an hour in length. Episodes seem to come out in batches of 3, an episode every 4 months of so. But each batch seems to come out every two years or so. These video films take time to create!

From a personal point of view, HERE enables me to take a fresh look at architecture outside the realm of having practiced architecture professionally for 3 decades. And from a professional point of view, HERE provides me with a vehicle to explore and present my architectural sensibilities to a wider audience than those who have worked with me in my architectural practice.
