Lecture Dinner

Each year we ask East Bay firms to help underwrite the expense of bringing in a renowned architect to Cal. Through the firms’ generosity we are able to present international architects such as Andrea Leers, Fuhimiko Maki, Craig Dykers and Merrill Elam without charging for the lecture. One benefit of sponsorship is attendance at the lecture dinner. The traditional wine reception and dinner precedes Johnston and Lee’s lecture. Dinner guests have reserved seats at the lecture hall–a must for this popular lecture series!
