2013 Silver SPUR: How Dan Solomon Reimagines Urban Neighborhoods

October 30, 2013

The 2013 Silver SPUR Awards, held on October 23, recognized four individuals whose achievements have made San Francisco and the Bay Area a better place to live and work.

Daniel Solomon, FAIA is an architect and urban designer whose career combines professional practice with teaching and writing. His commitment to the construction and reconstruction of urban neighborhoods extends beyond his renowned project work; he is a co-founder of the Congress for the New Urbanism and a passionate spokesman for the cause of the city. Solomon’s work as a partner in the Mithun | Solomon San Francisco office — including the LEED Platinum David Brower Center in Berkeley and the redevelopment of San Francisco’s Hunters View neighborhood — exemplify his commitment to the evolution of community design. He is professor emeritus at UC Berkeley and Kea Distinguished Professor at the University of Maryland, and has published many articles and three books.
