Gardner Dailey, an innovative 20th-century architect, helped to define a style of Bay Area architecture during the 1930s and 1940s that is still very prevalent today. Known as the “Bay Region Style” or “Bay Area Tradition,” Dailey’s love and appreciation of modern architecture helped to create some of the finest examples of minimalist design in the San Francisco Bay area.
