About the Author

Andrew Shanken is Associate Professor of Architecture at UC Berkeley. His first book 194X, is a cultural history of American architecture, planning, and consumer culture in this formative and strained moment for the architectural profession. He also publishes widely on architecture and memory.


"Into the Void Pacific is rich with drawings, photographs, and passages from documents and correspondence by the fair's designers, visitors, and critics that document this fantasy-abetting architectural enterprise. Shanken re-creates the look and experience of the fair as it was at the time-which is helpful, since almost none of its buildings are standing today." BOOM: A Journal of California
