Thom Mayne Says the SF Federal Building’s Got Excellent Social Skills

In this interview for AIA SF, Andrew Blum plays a fun game with a hyperliterate Thom Mayne: Try to get him to admit that the design of the new San Francisco Federal Building is “optimistic,” “daring” or anything more meaningful than just “a more reasonable place to spend nine hours of the day.”

The building’s social relationship is investigated in the exhibition “STREET CRED San Francisco: Architecture and the Pedestrian Experience” which runs through October 26 at AIA SF’s gallery. Kudos also for marrying an interview with images so nicely; production by Melanie McGraw.
