Come hear from project developer Chris Meany of Wilson Meany Sullivan and project architects Jay Turnbull of Page & Turnbull, Cathy Simon of Perkins + Will and Hans Baldauf of BCV Architects, as they tell us the story of the Ferry Building’s transformation. Co-presented with San Francisco Architectural Heritage.
