Pier 45, San Francisco, CA

Pier 45 offers an open market, shops, a hotel, restaurants, a theater, and housing above. It is approximately one city block wide and three blocks long and is organized about a wind protected central, typically San Francisco scaled, street, which expands in width for turnabouts or narrows for more purely pedestrian areas. Electric trains serve the length of the central street. The project's building form is derived from the traditional mixed-use buildings found in many San Francisco neighborhoods: three stories of flats in frame construction over one story of either garage or commercial space. Elevator lobbies or individual stairways, which are interspersed among the shops along the central street, provide entrances to the living units. Private and common exterior spaces are shaped in response to specific sun, wind and view conditions. (with LDA, San Francisco Port Authority Competition: First Place)
