Synopsis: The story of an architecture firm that has shaped the Bay Area for over one hundred years
The Architecture of Ratcliff is a lavish look at three generations of one company's architects who have left a significant imprint on West Coast design and continue to lead the way in innovative, creative building solutions. Their accomplishments are many, including Oakland International Airport's Terminal 2, Mills College's Concert Hall, buildings on Berkeley's ''Holy Hill,'' and a rich array of houses, from the charming to the contemporary. Throughout it all, Ratcliff has maintained its commitment to family, the environment, and to excellence in design.
About the Author: Woodruff Minor is a Bay Area native and a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. He has written extensively on Bay Area history and architecture, including books on shipping and aviation, yachting, and residential and commercial architecture. He makes his home in Alameda.

Remarkable record of a family business across generations ? An architectural firm that has shaped the Bay Area for over a century It would be hard for many people to envision a family business that would be passed on to successive generations who each, in turn, was charged with not only maintaining the quality and integrity of their work, but also in raising that standard. This architectural firm has endured for over a century creating homes, office buildings, campuses, and even an airport, by never losing sight of the individual values of each. The interest in great architecture started with the original tradition of homes that were built within the landscape and has carried through to the present.
