Designing the New Bay Bridge East Span 

Public Lecture on November 29, 2012

November 16, 2012
From the single, elegant tower to its unique asymmetric profile, the Self-Anchored Suspension Span of the new San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is a showcase of innovative design.

Come meet the architects behind this iconic structure at the second installment of the Joseph Nicoletti Lecture Series about the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Join Clive Endress, senior landscape architect with Caltrans, and Don MacDonald, principal with MacDonald Architects and the Bay Bridge project architect, on Thursday, November 29, 2012, as they discuss the design concept behind California's largest public works project.

This event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Bay Theater at the Aquarium of the Bay, located at Pier 39 in San Francisco. The event is open admission; tickets/reservations are not required.

The lecture series is named after a Bay Area dean of seismic engineering, Joseph P. Nicoletti, who recently stepped down from several earthquake advisory panels after more than 25 years of public service and more than 40 years in the private sector as a seismic engineer and executive.
