Steven is at UC Davis participating in a conference called "Tasting Histories". What is an architect doing at a conference about food? (I think Steven may have been asking himself that question yesterday, but today things are going really well.) He's presenting a paper about postwar food and post war architecture, McDonald's and McMansions, the loss of regionally specificity and traditions of craft in food and in architecture and ways those things may be coming back or could.
At least that's what I think he's talking about, I haven't had a chance to read his paper.
the conference is all weekend and his talk is this afternoon so if you're near Davis, head on over. Schedule here.
