Bay Area Architecture of the 50's and 60's

On Tuesday, April 21, Henrik Bull, FAIA will be sharing a presentation he has prepared for the Berkeley Architectural History Association (BAHA) on Bay Area Architecture of the 50's and 60's. Bull will discuss his experience with starting a firm that is now more than 40 years old and has managed to survive the recessions of 1974-75 and 1982, as well as the dot com bust of the 90's.

Henrik Bull, FAIA is one of the founding partners of BSA Architects. This 40-year old practice has received over 75 major design awards including "Firm of the Year" by the American Institute of Architects California Council.

Attracted by the modernism that was taking place in the Bay Area, Henrik Bull, FAIA moved out West in 1954. Because of his passion for skiing, Bull spent much time in the Sierras and began working on ski cabins as side projects. This work drew praise and awards and in 1956 Bull started his own firm. His work on cabins soon led to working on residential projects, condominiums, hotels and resorts in Lake Tahoe and Colorado. In 1967 Bull merged his firm with two others to form BSA Architects.
