Art by architects in three exhibits.
Philippe Bonnafont Gallery, 2200 Mason Street, San Francisco. "The Wonderwall--Drawings and Photographs from the New Orleans World's Fair" runs Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10:30 to 5:30, from October 24 through November 24. With its kiosks, metallic palm trees, wire-mesh alligators, domes, and turrets, the Wonderwall set the theme for the 1984 exposition: a jazz-filled celebration of Louisiana life and history. Drawings by architects Charles Moore, William Turnbull, and others let you follow the design process resulting in that extraordinary architectural gumbo. Admission is free.
American Institute of Architects, East Bay Chapter, 315 14th Street, Oakland. "Art by Architects" continues through November 16. Travel sketches, engravings, and finished drawings form the core of this show, which was organized to raise money for the Oakland Museum. The objects will be auctioned on November 16 from 6 to 9 P.M.; bidding starts at $25. Exhibit hours are weekdays 9 to 5. Free.
University Art Museum, 2626 Bancroft Way, Berkeley. "Love/House" continues through November 18. In 50 pen-and-ink drawings and a model, UC Berkeley professor of architecture Lars Lerup explores the symbolism of the house. Museum hours are Wednesdays through Sundays, 11 to 5. Admission costs up to $2.
