Second Bay Area Tradition (1928-1942)

The Second Bay Tradition was rooted in San Francisco, the greater Bay Area, and the East Bay. Also referred to as "redwood post and beam", the style is characterized by a rustic, woodsy philosophy and features sleek lines and machine aesthetic. Associated with European Modernism, the architects Gardner Dailey, William Merchant, and William Wurster designed in the style.
