Better known for narrow streets lined with red lanterns and eclectic shops, Chinatown also has some of the best Modernist architecture in San Francisco, much of it designed by Chinese-American architects. Explore Chinatown with the Docomomo US Northern California (NOCA) chapter, including spectacular works by architects Clement Chen and Worley Wong, such as the Brutalist Hilton Hotel, the former Empress of China restaurant, and Buddha’s Universal Church.
