This guidebook is geared toward anyone who wants to get out and see San Diego’s best buildings. By using the regional map provided, even those new to San Diego can figure out how to get where they want to go. Each neighborhood has its own map, and, wherever possible, essential buildings are clustered within walking distance of each other on one map. In many neighborhoods, one may park their car and explore the architectural attractions on foot.
Downtown San Diego and urban neighborhoods like Mission Hills and North Park get their obvious due, but this guide also includes beach cities and the North Coast as far as Oceanside, the inland sections of North County, East County, and it extends south to San Ysidro and Tijuana. Styles covered range from modern to Mediterranean
The full-color book has photographs to accompany each of the hundreds of listings, but is still compact enough to fit in a car’s glove compartment.

FINALLY—A GUIDE TO SAN DIEGO’S ARCHITECTURE
Over the years San Diego’s best architects have designed some of the most interesting buildings in the country, which are often overlooked by the national media. In just over 100 years, San Diego moved from missions to Spanish Romance, then to Irving Gill’s primal modernism, followed by decades of fine post-WW II modernism. Recently, a new generation of architects has been quietly redefining regional architecture.
Over the past 25 years, the San Diego region has come of age: its population exceeds 3 million, plus another 1.3 million in neighboring Tijuana. America’s Finest City, and the county that surrounds it, deserves a serious, in-depth architectural study. San Diego Architecture: From Missions to Modern fills that need—presenting not only the architecture and buildings themselves, but some of the important stories, institutions, plans, political forces, and people behind those designs.About the Author:
