Event Details

2019 Architecture & the City Festival | SF

The 16th annual month-long celebration features behind the scenes and walking tours, films, exhibitions, lectures and more that address varying aspects of the design and planning process.

This years festival theme, “We the City”, aims to explore how cultural diversity and connectivity inspire and inform the built environment. From the Dogpatch to the Outer Sunset — San Francisco is a unique, diverse, and multi-generational mosaic.

The PG&E Hunters Point Site is a multi faceted property located in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco, which is in the midst of a complex, multi-year transformation. The former site of the Hunters Point Power Plant, which was closed in 2006, this land was for decades a forbidden industrial zone.

Since 2013, envelope A+D, in collaboration with RHAA and Studio O, have led an innovative planning process that uses interim uses to cultivate a deeper, ongoing dialogue with the community about the site’s future development. This process was integral to the design of the Hunters Point Shoreline, a new public access improvement along with more than a quarter-mile of bay edge.

Visitors to this new space experience a sense of immersion in the landscape, as well as the site’s layered histories. As they move from sculpted hardscapes with native plantings to open meadows, an overlay of didactic elements—text and graphics embedded within the park’s concrete walls, pathways and benches—will reveal the community voices and events that define site’s legacy. The tour will be led by members of the design team and representatives of PG&E.
