in a conversation about cool buildings that burned down in the 90s, jacob told me about tony duquette (neo-baroque costume/interior/jewelry designer extraordinaire) and his san francisco synagogue-turned-”celebrational-environment,” the canticle of the sun of st. francis of assisi. tony revitalized the vandalized building with his art, antique collections, and sculptures, but everything (gaudy interiors included)...
