Building Notes

A new employee of the Skidmore, Owings and Merrill's San Francisco office, William Turnbull, Jr., (1935-1997) worked on this master planning effort. According to the Online Archive of California: "One of his achievements at SOM was as a designer of the Big Sur Coast Master Plan, which has been written into law and protects nearly 100 miles of pristine California coastline from development."
