On a break from the many excellent panels and sessions at the annual conference for the American Immigration Lawyers Association (@ailanational), I managed to get a wonderful look at two iconic San Francisco buildings. On the left is the famous Transamerica Pyramid Center, designed specifically by William Pereira & Associates to "allow natural light and fresh air to filter down to the streets below." On the right is the Sentinel Building, which I was not familiar with prior to this trip. The building has had a number of owners and tenants since its completion in 1907, but is currently owned by Francis Ford Coppola, who bought the building in 1972 to be the headquarters for his production company, American Zoetrope, from where @cafezoetrope on the ground floor gets its name. Films including the Godfather II and III, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, One From the Heart, The Outsiders, and Dracula were written, edited, or sound mixed inside this pretty green building. Perhaps they'd like a law firm tenant?
