The San Francisco Art Palace, built in 1915 for Panama's Pacific Exposition, is gradually abandoned and turned into a ruined building. It was not until 1962 that the famous German architect Mabeck redesigned it and renovated it, which made it a second youthful beauty. The palace of art, called the Palace of Art, did not display a single piece of art in the building. Art lies in the building itself. The Art Palace is a domed hall with arches and stone pillars. In the Art Palace, engineers built it with simple building materials (a mixture of plaster and fiber) because it was considered a temporary building for the Expo. On the art preservation day of October 1915, the people who supported the preservation of the palace collected 33,000 signatures and raised $350,000 to rebuild the palace and use permanent materials. The palace that should have been demolished was preserved in opposition to San Francisco residents Come on.
I took the opportunity to visit the San Francisco Academy of Arts while my family was on vacation here. It really is a very special place. The Diego Rivera frescoes are the most famous attractions, the building itself is amazing, a symphony orchestra is under construction, not to mention the main trances are worth a visit!
This beautiful school has the most amazing views of the city. You can visit not only through the country's oldest art school but also see the art work of the students as well as the amazing Diego Rivera frescoes. It is a great place to hide and easy to walk to the famous Lombard Street, don't miss it.
Beautiful place, you can relax in the park and enjoy the view
The San Francisco art palace is still very good, and there are fewer people.
The San Francisco Art Palace, originally built in 1915 for the Panama Pacific World Exposition, attracted 18 million visitors, but was abandoned after the event, and was not commissioned until 1962 to design and renovate the famous German architect, Mebeck, who specializes in detail decoration. This is the origin of the elaborately carved "Palace of Art", a Roman ruined building designed by New York City-born architect Mebeck, who lives in Berkeley. The art palace is designed to show the world a visually spectacular beauty, the main building at the time of the exhibition, the last construction, was built on December 8, 1913. The art palace is mainly a domed hall, with arches and stone pillars. In the building, engineers built simple building materials (a mixture of plaster and fibers) considering that they were only temporary buildings for the exhibition. On the October 1915 Day of Art Conservation, pro-conservationists gathered 33,000 signatures and raised $350,000 to rebuild the Palace and use permanent building materials, which should have been demolished and preserved against the opposition of San Francisco residents Come on.
San Francisco Art Palace
The San Francisco Art Palace was originally built in 1915 for the Panama Pacific World Expo. It attracted 18 million visitors at the time, but was abandoned after the event. It was not until 1962 that the famous German architect Mabeck (Bernard Maybeck) was commissioned to design and renovate it. He specializes in detail decoration, which is the origin of the exquisitely carved style of the "art palace". The antique Roman ruins were designed by Maybek (Bernard Ralph Maybeck (1862-1957)), an architect born in New York City and resident in Berkeley. The design of the art palace was designed to present a visual sense of beauty.
