SAN FRANCISCO MUSEUM OF ARCHITECTURE AND THE CITY
Studio 2 - Spring 2010
Professor Thom Faulders
Orienting particular views of San Francisco and registering them along a ramped pathway became integral features of this museum design. By positioning the building in relationship to how people use Jessie Square as a short cut across a block, I could design a footprint that would both shorten and intercept their paths. The galleries determined the height of floor plates while the circulation paths direct the user through the museum exhibits and offer view portals of the city.
