San Francisco http://publicradiotulsa.org en The Art of the Bridge: A Conversation with Donald MacDonald, the Noted Bridge Architect http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/art-bridge-conversation-donald-macdonald-noted-bridge-architect <p>What makes for the creation of a structural or architectural icon? Is it strictly a matter of design? Or do both design and engineering play a role? And what about the location or environment surrounding a given structure --- how might they be involved? We explore such questions with our guest, Donald MacDonald, the noted bridge architect. Born in Canada and based for many years in San Francisco, MacDonald has designed high-rise buildings, landmark homes, and even an earthquake-proof bed.
