    About The Golden Gateway (from LocalWiki):

    ******The Golden Gateway was one of the first projects of the SF Redevelopment Agency. The area that is now the Golden Gateway used to be an Italian neighborhood called Produce Market. The Redevelopment Agency designated the area blighted and after a long fight with business owners in the area, it was demolished and replaced by Golden Gateway and One Maritime Plaza (both part of the Golden Gateway Redevelopment Project).******

    SCARCE, this limited edition of only 1000 copies quickly went out-of-print. It has become very hard-to-find.

    About JUAN O'GORMAN and his CENTRAL LIBRARY MOSAIC (from Wikipedia):

    ******Juan O'Gorman's most celebrated work due to its creativity, construction technique, and dimensions, are the four thousand square meters murals covering the four faces of the building of the Central Library at Ciudad Universitaria at UNAM. These murals are mosaics made from millions of colored stones that he gathered all around Mexico in order to be able to obtain the different colors he needed. The north side pictures Mexico's pre-Hispanic past and the south facade its colonial one, while the east wall depicts the contemporary world, and the west shows the university and contemporary Mexico.

    "From the beginning, I had the idea of making mosaics of colored stones in the walls of the collections, with a technique in which I was already well experienced. With these mosaics the library would be different from the other buildings of Ciudad Universitaria, and it would be given a particular Mexican character."******

    About the CENTRAL LIBRARY (from Wikipedia):

    ******The Central Library of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) holds one of the largest collections in Mexico. The building is covered with the mural Historical Representation of Culture, created by the Mexican artist Juan O'Gorman. His unique masterpiece has made the Central Library one of the most iconic buildings in modern Mexico. In July 2007, UNESCO proclaimed the Central Library, along with the Central Campus of the University City, as a World Heritage site.

    The four thousand square foot mural is made out of thousands of colored stones, something that never had been done at that scale. According to the artist, in each of the four walls that make up the surface of the mosaic, he represented three fundamental historical facets of Mexican culture: the pre-Hispanic era, the Spanish colonial era, and the modern age.******

    The double issue 1-2 and issue 3 were originally published by the Berlin publishing house Skythen in 1922.

    About VESC/OBJET/GEGENSTAND (from the Publisher):

    ******Although it lasted for only two issues (double issue 1&2 and issue 3) and was written mostly in Russian, the Russian Emigrant magazine "Vesc" exercised an enormous influence on other periodicals of that time. Today, the avant-garde art journal is considered a modernist landmark. Now, for the first time, the extraordinary contents of this short-lived magazine are made accessible in annotated translations and summaries.

    This portfolio slipcase includes reprints of the original two issues of "Vesc Objet Gegenstand" from March/April and May 1922, edited by El Lissitzky and Ilja Ehrenburg with contents designed by El Lissitzky. A third volume features commentary and translations in both German and English.******

    About ILYA EHRENBURG (from Wikipedia):

    ******Ilya Ehrenburg, b.1891 d.1967, was a Russian journalist, revolutionary, writer, and historian. With around one hundred published titles, he is one of the most prolific and notable authors of the Soviet Union. In the 1920s, Ehrenburg moved to Paris and later Berlin, where he published the magazine Vesc/Objet/Gegenstand together with El Lissitzky.******

    About EL LISSITZKY (from Wikipedia):

    El Lissitzky, b.1890 d.1941, was a Russian architect and painter, who from 1919/20 onwards was involved with Suprematism. Between 1919 and 1927 he produced a large body of paintings, prints, and drawings that he referred to by the word Proun, an acronym for "project for the affirmation of the new" in Russian. The term Proun was conceived by Lissitzky in 1919 specifically to signify his turn to non-objective art. Lissitzky's versatile body of work includes poster and theater set design, typography, and architecture.******

    NORTHERN WATERFRONT PLAN.

    Produced by John S. Bolles Associates for the City Planning Commission of the City in cooperation with the San Francisco Port Authority, 1968.

    From the Introduction: "The City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Port Authority have determined that it is essential at this time to ensure full use of its waterfront in a manner consistent with the waterfront's position as a unique and irreplaceable resource of not only the City but the entire Bay Area.

    The purpose of the Northern Waterfront Plan is to guide future development in all areas on and contiguous to the harbor in a manner consistent with the interests of San Francisco. The plan must provide mechanisms and guidelines whereby public and private interests can work together to fulfill the social, economic and physical objectives with maximum benefit for all.

    The challenges posed by this study have been to integrate an authentic maritime atmosphere into the character and fabric of the City, and to capture in a strong and positive manner the unique opportunities for imaginative and dramatic development of San Francisco's waterfront."

    Hardcovers, no dustjacket as issued, 11x14 inches oblong, 146 pages.

    Contains 85 ILLUSTRATIONS including maps, drawings, photos and architectural renderings.

    GOOD condition, the covers are rubbed and scraped but still solid and doing their job well, there is some wear and a small hole to the front free endpaper, some of the inner hinges are cracked and a bit weak but still holding (this book is known for its weak glue binding), otherwise the inner pages are bright, clean, clear and unmarked.

    This is the plan that guided the transformation of San Francisco's Northern Waterfront from the ugly, elevated freeway, desolate area that it was, into the techie mecca of expensive lofts, sailboats, and foodie playgrounds, that it is today.

    INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This book is large and heavy and will require additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed. Or you can contact us ahead of time to find out the shipping charge to your country. Thanks.
