Trip :: Spring Break in Sunny California

** THIS TRIP HAS BEEN CANCELED. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE WE MAY HAVE CAUSED. **


California, Here We Come!
Thursday, March 18-Saturday, March 27

What better way can there be than to spend Spring Break having a great time traveling and learning, and no exams or projects due?! Well, have I got a trip planned for you! If you thought Design London was great last year (and it WAS!), you are going to be blown away when you see what’s planned for California, Here We Come!

Living on the East coast can get us kind of isolated in our thinking and we are prone to forget there’s another part of the country that has made some really important investments in design that affect us. Famous architects like the Greene Brothers (there’s a current exhibit at the MFA on them right now), Frank Lloyd Wright (yes, even FLW has work in California!), Irving Gill, Louis Kahn, Frank Gehry, Julia Morgan, and Renzo Piano all have work out there that is waiting for you to come see.


Can you match up the following buildings with their designer?
1. deYoung Museum...................... a. Frank Gehry
2. Gamble House............................ b. Irving Gill
3. Getty Center............................... c. Greene & Greene
4. Hearst Castle............................... d. Herzog and deMuron
5. Hollyhock House......................... e. Louis Kahn
6. LA County Museum of Art............ f. Richard Meier
7. Salk Institute............................... g. Julia Morgan
8. San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art... h. Renzo Piano
9. Walt Disney Concert Hall............ i. Frank Lloyd Wright

If you can’t do it now, you WILL be able to upon your return to Boston!


We’ll fly out of Boston to Los Angeles on Thursday night, March 18th, and fly back to Boston from San Francisco on Saturday night, March 27th. We’ll “do” Los Angeles, San Diego (yes, you can even go to the zoo!), spend a night in beautiful Santa Barbara on our way up the coast to San Simeon and the Hearst Castle, and then San Francisco.

I’m still waiting for the final airline price, but I don’t think the trip will run over $1,700 double occupancy, and that includes all transportation, lodging with breakfast, and admissions. Try doing all we’re going to do on your own and it will easily cost twice as much!
Seats are limited to 38 so act quickly. As usual, you may bring along someone not connected to the BAC if they aren’t taking the seat of a BAC student. When the final airfare is determined, the BAC Bursar’s office will develop a payment schedule, which will begin with a non-refundable deposit.

If you are interested in reserving a seat, contact Dave Harrison.
