BAR Architects' Tech Building and Guest Facilities at Skywalker Ranch in Architectural Digest

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Enamored with history and inspired by the Victorian architecture of his childhood in Modesto, CA, George Lucas discusses the architecture of Skywalker Ranch in the March edition of Architectural Digest.

"When you want to do something authentic, you can't just buy the stuff off the shelf," Lucas says. "I didn't want it to look like an interpretation of a Victorian building. I wanted it to look like a real Victorian." To that end, BAR's Technical Building - modeled after an 1880s winery and the Victorian-inspired Guest Facilities building at Skywalker Ranch are featured in the article.
