This is a blog for musings, ramblings and new discoveries about the work of San Francisco architect Timothy Pflueger and other work during his era. While Pflueger and architecture of the 1920s to the 1940s is an important theme, other important periods, contemporary architecture and architectural preservation topics in the SF Bay Area and beyond will also be discussed.
This space is also an occasional news source for the book, “Art Deco San Francisco: The Architecture of Timothy Pflueger” published in October, 2008 by Princeton Architectural Press, by Therese Poletti, with photography by Tom Paiva. Some of Paiva’s gorgeous photos will also appear on this blog, via (c) Tom Paiva Photography, such as the blog’s theme photo of the San Francisco skyline, which is an aerial photo by Paiva, from a helicopter.
The author (yours truly), Therese Poletti, is also the writer of this blog. I am a working journalist in San Francisco and a volunteer for San Francisco City Guides. It was doing research for my tour, Downtown Deco, that got me interested in the work of Pflueger and his era. I have a great passion for architecture and the role it plays in our daily lives. I will also try to provide updates on our tour, which features many Pflueger buildings.
