The San Francisco Public Safety Campus is awarded with the National AIA Justice Facilities Award!

Jury Comments:

“This is a strong civic landmark with with clear and restrained exterior massing and planning. Considering that the new building is much larger, the design is surprisingly sensitive to the existing fire station in scale. Its use of solar shading devices is well integrated into the overall design.”

The latest piece of the puzzle is a 200,000-square-foot structure at Third and Howard streets that includes a 55,000-square-foot, column-free ballroom, a glassed-in lobby with 24-foot ceilings, and an elevator landing that floats above the increasingly busy corner. The third floor is devoted to meeting rooms tucked behind a long outdoor terrace that makes the front of the newcomer less monolithic.

As Salesforce Tower nears completion, the plaza that will accompany it has been shorn of two eye-catching features: a grove of redwood trees and a 40-foot-tall sculpture made from chunks of recycled concrete.
Instead, the half-acre space at Mission and Fremont streets will be handsomely paved but almost entirely open — a change instigated by Salesforce but agreed to by public officials. They welcome the idea of an uncluttered path to the new Transbay Transit Center, which should open next spring on the plaza’s south edge.
“In retrospect, 20 redwood trees are probably not the best thing to have” between Mission Street and what will be the transit center’s main entrance, said John Rahaim, San Francisco’s planning director. “This leaves a clear passage and sight lines at both ends” (July 5, 2017).

Highlighting best practices for design that appropriately address the visual and nonvisual needs of the blind and visually impaired.
