“College View” A scenic of San Francisco across the UC Berkeley campus. A closer view will reveal the iconic ‘Sather Tower’ in the left hand corner of the photograph, which is a bell tower, with clocks on its four faces and is a unique center piece on the campus. #ucberkeley #ucberkeleycampus #sanfrancisco #berkeley #sanfranciscobay #sunset #dusk #sundown #clouds #city #sathertower #bradhodgesphotography

#FBF One of our early #UCBerkeley projects was to design handrails for the Campanile plaza that fit in with John Galen Howard’s iconic Sather Tower. With local artist Michael Bondi, we designed railings with delicate curves to make counterpoint to the presence of the tower.

#California day 17: #UniversityOfCaliforniaBerkeley’s #SatherTower. In 1902 the famous 12th century bell tower known as the #campanile in the #PalazzoSanMarco in Venice, Italy came thundering to the ground. Miraculously no one but a resident cat was hurt in the unexpected catastrophe.
#UCBerkeley campus #architect, #JohnGalenHoward, had visited Venice in the 1890’s, and had the chance to see the #SanMarcoCampanile before its collapse. He rebuilt it here on 1912.

Looking strikingly similar to that other famous tower, the Campanile on the campus of UC Berkeley has stood a lynchpin on campus since its cornerstone was laid on March 8, 1914. #TheCampanile is constructed of 2,800 blocks of #RaymondGranite quarried from the #SierraNevada Mountains, over 500 tons of structural steel, and #AlaskanMarble. The #belltower is a #gothic architectural form, built in a Neo-Classical way. Hiding inside its dry climate-steady walls are some #fossils belonging to the University of California Museum of Paleontology, many of which come from the #LaBreaTarPits in Los Angeles. The 12 bells that make up the original carillon were gifts of Jane K. Sather (who also donated the funds to construct the tower, itself) in 1914, but because of war-related delays, they were not installed until 1917. The largest of the bells, weighing in at 4,118 lbs. (the smallest is 329 lbs) is inscribed with the words by UC Berkeley Professor Flag: We ring, we chime, we toll, Lend ye the silent part Some answer in the heart, Some echo in the soul.

In 1978 an additional 36 bells were added after a fund raising mission by the class of 1928, and 13 more were added in 1983, bringing the total up to 61 bells. The carillon is played daily and for special occasions.

The Campanile also does something very unique: it moves everyday, imperceptibly to the human eye. Well, there is a phenomenon called #SunSway, in which the #marble wants to follow the sun (because it absorbs the heat), but the structural frame stays put, causing cracks on the facade of the tower, mainly in the corners. At night, the temperature drops, and the tower returns to its original position. #architecture #UCBerkeley

Sather Tower, aka The Campanile, is the third tallest bell-and-clock tower in the world. Located on the @ucberkeleyofficial campus, it’s one of the university’s most recognizable symbols. It has 61 bells, 3 daily carillon concerts, and an 8th floor observation deck with great views, in every direction, of the campus, Berkeley, the Bay, San Francisco, and the Bay and Golden Gate bridges. Completed in 1914 and opened to the public in 1917. #campanile #berkeley #california #ucberkeley #campus #campuslife #sanfranciscobayarea #bells #belltower #clocktower #observationdeck #greatviews #visitberkeley #sathertower #berkeleycampanile #travel #travelphotography #design #architecture
