Here’s what John King, Urban Design columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle says:
“David Prowler is one of the few people I know whose professional focus is the shaping of San Francisco’s landscape and who hasn’t succumbed to cynicism. He loves the city, and he loves trying to make things happen that in his view make sense.
He’s also started a blog with some fun entries — including a riff on why real… cities are better than the ones of avatars and bits, and a photo essay of odd bits stuck on buildings.”
