dancing with architecture: Old Sacramento, California
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Due to a short business trip, I had 18 hours, including an overnight, in Sacramento. The conference was in Old Sacramento (a part of Sacramento), a quaint collection of 19th century buildings huddled along the river, pressed to the waterline by a highway (and split by a railroad). Because the conference hotel was outside of my per diem, I stayed on an old river boat (!!!) at half the cost! A gorgeous Streamline Moderne bridge designed by Alfred Eichler (apparently of no relation to the famous mid-century Modernist Joseph Eichler) greeted me during my walk from the riverboat to the conference.
Based on a wee bit of research, there's not a whole lot of historical Modern to speak of in Sacramento. Nevertheless, I didn't have time (or my real camera) to investigate. Maybe another time!
