San Francisco has long been one of America's landmark cities, a gleaming jewel on the West Coast surrounded on three sides by water, well known for its hilly streets, Victorian residences and a free spiritedness that made it the home of the Beat generation, flower power and gay pride. But over time, this "storybook city of spires and minarets" has also made a name for itself in the world of architecture and design. Victorian architecture gradually gave way to Art Deco and was followed by a modern movement that today favours a mixture of both minimalist and more decorative styles. This illustrated book takes the reader on a tour through the latest in San Francisco's residential design and uncovers yet another dynamic facet of this unique North American city.
