PIER 70 SAN FRANCISCO, CA CONTEXT CONDITIONS CONCEPT/PROGRAM MASTERPLAN SITE PLAN DETAILS AERIALS PERSPECTIVES CONCLUSION


PIER 70 SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

+67 acres historical shipyard (17 acres exisiting industrial ship repair) Pier 70 is bounded by Mariposa Street to the north, Illinois Street to the west, 22nd Street to the south, and San Francisco Bay to the east. The bay coast starting above Pier 14 and traveling to Pier 42 has seen great detail and care in its development and maintenance. Pier 52 to Pier 92 has not received the same amount of attention as the fellow peers to the north. However, recent development is no longer turning its back to the industrial and gritty character of the easternmost piers. Today, office parks, residential towers, and infrastructural improvements have been made to the area in an effort to connect the industrial piers of the east to the downtown piers of the north.

One hundred and fifty years ago (just before our timeline begins) the San Francisco bay was full of tidal flats/marshes hosting an array of then common native flora and fauna. marshland, tidal flats, riparian buffers, and grasslands created a complex and delicate hydrological system. Today, that system is structured, polluted, and increasingly urban throughout the San Francisco shoreline. Pier 70, with a rich past in not only ship building but also the refinement of iron and steel, faces serious battles to reestablish any sort of healthy ecosystem. In addition to land contaminants, there is a sewage outfall point (shown bottom right) for the city in between pier 60 and 70. Thus polluting the water and discouraging biological activity.

CONCEPT Development Program 1. Find creative ways to not only rehabilitate the historic resources of the site but also celebrate and educate visitors to the historical significance. 2. Preserve and celebrate the long-term viability of the ship repair industry. 3. Create a new open space network that extends the San Francisco Bay Trail and the Blue Greenway to and through Pier 70. Thus promoting connectivity of the site to other areas of San Francisco. 4. Implement potential areas for diverse sustainable mixed-use infill development. -office, research, emerging technologies, light industry, commmercial, cultural, dense residential and recreational uses to expand San Francisco’s economic/cultural base. -pedestrian-oriented and fosters use of alternative, sustainable transportation modes and practices (cycling, bus, light rail, etc). 5. Extend the city’s infrastructure to enhance public access and implement new development along the waterfront. 6. Remediate environmental contamination. 7. Approach development/design in an extremely creative, innovative, and cutting-edge fashion. + PARKS, INFILL, INDUSTRY, REMEDIATION, EXPLORATION + DELETION, DUPLICATION, INVERSION + MEMBRANE, ECO-DEVO + ECOLOGICAL/BIOLOGICAL/SOCIAL STRUCTURES/SIMILARITIES

Composite layering used to formulate specific site design - Key geometries are inspired by views, site circulation/flow, existing historic forms, and potential uses. Furthermore, they serve as templates for sculptural elements.

THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO APPROACH DESIGN IN AN EXTREMELY CREATIVE, INNOVATIVE, AND CUTTING EDGE FASHION WHILE RESPECTING THE HISTORIC CHARACTER AND USE OF THE SITE. KEY FRACTAL GEOMETRIES ALLOW NOT ONLY INTERESTING FORM BUT INCREASE THE SITE’S PERMEABILITY. PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC BUILDINGS AND IMPLEMENTATION OF FRACTAL DESIGN FASHIONS AN ENERGIZING AND INTRIGUING CONFLICT OF FORCES. IT IS THIS TENSION AND ENERGY BETWEEN OLD/NEW, FORMAL/INFORMAL THAT ALLOWS FOR THE SITE TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ADDITION TO THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY COASTLINE.
