Infilling the Void

2020 Unbuilt Design Merit Award + Urban Design Commendation

Urban planning in San Francisco has confined ethnic neighborhoods into inhuman urban spaces. The design approach aims to nurture the uses of intimate streets capes. The response is to pave an urban aperture bridging Market and Mission streets as a continuous fabric revealing and reclaiming the lost layers of time.

There is great urbanism here; a refreshing change from stereotypical glass boxes and a compelling process of shaping the building form in response to the urban circumstance.
