With Design Legacy of John Marsh Davis (Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers, 2023), author and architect Hans Baldauf, FAIA, LEED AP, introduces design enthusiasts to an extraordinary body of built work and an approach that Marsh Davis (1931–2009) had dubbed “Forgotten Modern” and that Baldauf calls “Wood Expressionism.” This presentation delves into Marsh Davis’ work in Napa: the Barnett Residence, Rutherford Estates Winery, Joseph Phelps Vineyards, and the Thacher Residence.

A co-founding Principal of BCV Architecture + Interiors, Baldauf has worked across a variety of project types including mixed-use developments, residences, market halls, restaurants and wineries. A long-standing interest in the public realm has spurred BCV to pursue a wide range of projects that at their core enrich civic life, including the San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace, Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California, and interventions on behalf of the Good Food Awards. Hans advocates for a holistic vision of sustainability drawing inspiration from the Slow Food Movement’s tenets: its celebratory aspects that constitute “good” and its insistence upon “clean” and “fair.” Baldauf has taught architecture at Yale University, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Notre Dame University, where he served as visiting faculty at their Rome Studies program. Baldauf has also served as past chairman of the Maybeck Foundation as well as on various boards including the Friends of the Bancroft Library and the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA, now Foodwise).      LinkedIn        Instagram
