Davisville, 7/21/14: Sizing up the architecture of Davis

Robert Lindley photoDavis doesn’t have a lot of natural beauty—we have great trees, but no dramatic mountains or river—so buildings are maybe more important here than they would be elsewhere, in terms of defining the look of the town. So, what makes good architectural design in Davis? What does Davis need more of, or less of? We talk about this today with Davis architect Robert Lindley, who over a 30-year career has designed many buildings in Davis and elsewhere (including Mishka’s Café, behind him in this photo).
