"The contextualist movement in San Francisco arose following the simultaneous realization of Modernist projects like the Embarcadero Center and the loss of historic buildings like the City of Paris. David Baker of David Baker + Partners takes a critical look at the strengths and weaknesses of the movement, from the early historic rehabilitation of sites such as Ghirardelli Square to the various forms of buildings that are designed to fit in, and assesses the wisdom of legal guidelines that enforce the movement."
