Although the Bay is a natural entity borne of great rivers draining the entire Central Valley of California, every inch of its shoreline today is the product of human activity, by either intent or incident. — Center for Land Use Interpretation
On September 10, the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI) will release Around the Bay: Man-Made Sites of Interest in the San Francisco Bay Region -- the second book in its "Man-Made Sites of Interest" series. Aimed to coincide with the historic opening of the Bay Bridge expansion, the book will feature aerial portraits of locations along the Bay's waterfront, accompanied by historical explanations for the site's status. The CLUI was founded by Matthew Coolidge, who also authored Around the Bay, and devotes its exhibition and research spaces to "understanding the nature and extent of human interaction with the earth's surface, and in finding new meanings in the intentional and incidental forms that we individually and collectively create."
