UC/San Francisco

San Francisco, CA (1999)


While the Mission Bay street grid effectively integrates the campus with the surrounding communities, it contributes to the nondescript nature of the site. In order to establish a distinct identity for the campus, the Master Plan proposes a contiguous network of pedestrian spaces as an alternative to the surrounding grid of vehicular and service traffic.


This pedestrian landscape is composed of a hierarchy of open spaces, linked together by passageways that structure pedestrian movement through campus. At least one YSA principal participated as design architect, supervising architect and/or senior designer while associated with the architect-of-record for this project.
