Meet the man whose architectural vision, mission and skills brought about the building of the Taube Koret Campus for Jewish Life
We often consider architecture as mere functional buildings. However, in his beautifully presented book, How Architecture Tells: 9 Realities That Will Change the Way You See
, Robert Steinberg explores how architecture shapes lives and communities, how it effects the way we feel, and facilitates the ways we interact, integrate and thrive. The JCC campus came into being thanks to Robert Steinberg's architectural vision, mission and skills. He is a Berkeley-trained, third generation architect, and long-time resident of Palo Alto.
There will be a book signing after the event. Books will be available for purchase.
