Publisher Shinkenchiku-sha

ISBN 4910019730484

Idea Code 18172

Featuring recent and in progress urban transformation in San Francisco, this issue is guest edited by Craig Hartman, senior consulting design partner at the San Francisco-based firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Two major areas are at the root of this citywide enrichment: the Yerba Buena Garden, part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the De Young Museum, situated in Golden Gate Park. These burgeoning cultural hotspots are spreading out to fill various urban voids, such as old factories, railyards, piers, and elsewhere. One huge transformation is the Transbay Transit Center, a mixed development project now recognised as a new neighbourhood.
