letter

FROM THE MAYOR

Dear Friends,

H

ere in San Francisco, we’ve always been innovators. When the city was leveled by the 1906 earthquake more than a century ago, San Franciscans began rebuilding immediately. Local leaders in industry and design came forward to reimagine a modern city: a center of banking and commerce comprising diverse communities. Then, at the turn of this century, a new type of San Francisco modernist emerged as industrial and graphic designers flourished amid the creativity of the dot-com boom. When the boom became a bust eight years ago, these pioneers remained and were ready to take on new challenges in digital technology, sustainable architecture and environmental design. This is no accident. San Francisco is a city of dreamers and doers. Our dreams go beyond business and technology to the human level as well. Just this past year, some of the city’s most esteemed architects and developers completed a handful of new housing opportunities designed to foster pride and well-being in some of our city’s neediest residents. It is my job to create a framework for the success and vitality of all San Franciscans, and in the tough economy that we are facing, citizens are helping out wherever possible. Local architects, designers, shop owners and restaurateurs thrive because they are part of a spirited and hopeful community. This city has always been more than a place. San Francisco is an idea—that diversity builds a stronger society, that tolerance advances democracy, that compassion is essential for a better world. Welcome to San Francisco, a small city with big plans, bound only by our capacity to imagine.

COURTESY OF THE MAYOR’S OFFICE

With warmest regards,

Gavin Newsom Mayor

A bamboo grove covers the windowless facade of the building next door, and along Mission Street is a kinetic George Rickey sculpture, Annular Eclipse. Open at all times.

560 Mission St. 343 Sansome St. (cross street: Halleck) Take the elevator up to the terrace on the 15th floor. Joan Brown’s Four Seasons Obelisk stands in the center; also note the intricate fountain by Belgian sculptor Pol Bury in the Sacramento Street lobby. Open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

(cross street: Front) Tucked between very tall buildings, this little gem of a space, with travertine and granite floors, is accessible through the building lobby or directly off Front Street. Cafe open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.; garden open 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

101 Second St. (cross street: Mission) Minimalist design and sumptuous materials characterize this expansive five-story greenhouse, where beige marble walls contrast with black granite floors. The space features artwork by painter Charles Arnoldi and sculpture by Larry Bell. Open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

One Sansome St. (cross street: Sutter) This glass-roofed atrium is one of the most

elegant open spaces downtown. White marble floors and walls are dramatically offset with a black marble fountain. A replica of an Art Deco bronze sculpture, the Star Maiden by Alexander Stirling Calder, graces one of the niches. Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

425 Market St. (cross street: Fremont) This urban garden is shady but pleasant. Stylishly outfitted with gray and pink granite paving and architectural benches, it is a fine place to people-watch while sipping a cup of coffee from the adjacent cafe. Open at all times.

525 Market St. (cross street: First) Next to Ecker Alley is this space with a massive granite fountain by Elyn Zimmerman. Benches in between the fountain’s two halves offer a prime spot to enjoy the flowing water. Open at all times.

199 Fremont St. (cross street: Beale) This garden was a collaboration between sculptor Paul Kos and poet Robert Hass; a poem by Hass is engraved on the wall behind a graceful line of birch trees. Open at all times.

555 Mission St. (cross street: First) A large, playful sculpture by Jonathan Borofsky dominates this plaza, which steps up on the west side to a sitting area with wooden benches and three large aluminum heads by Ugo Rondinone. Open at all times.

2020 vision

these new structures—some haven’t yet broken ground, while some are already under construction—are slated to change the shape of san Francisco over the next decade.

Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica adds another arrow to his San Francisco quiver, following up the Infinity in South Park with this massive mixed-used project comprising 1,900 residential units along with retail shops. The fiveacre development runs along Eighth Street through to Market Street, speeding along a long-awaited revitalization of this area of downtown. The first of three planned phases of building, which includes 440 units, broke ground in May 2008 and is scheduled to be finished next year. The facade is a mix of glass, concrete and metal, and the layout breaks things up with overlapping geometries around a large courtyard. 40 Architecture + Design guiDe

Treasure island Built for the 1939 World’s Fair, the 400-acre manmade island north of the city is once again fertile ground for utopian dreams. Re-envisioned by SOM (in conjunction with SMWM and CMG) as a model of sustainability, the high-density, pedestrian-focused community will retain most of its open space while providing 6,000 residential units as well as a 20-acre organic farm. The first residences should begin opening around 2013. chDmAg.com summer 2009

san FranCisCo publiC uTiliTies Commission Green energy will be at the forefront— literally—at the new headquarters of the Public Utilities Commission, just down the street from City Hall. Replacing an old building damaged in the 1989 earthquake, the new design by local firm Kaplan McLaughlin Diaz Architects is anticipated to be completed in 2012 and will lead by example by exceeding San Francisco’s mandatory standards for green building. Corkscrew-shaped wind turbines and solar panels—both integrated into the facade—will provide 40 percent of the building’s power, and water-conserving measures include an on-site graywater-recycling system.

Transbay Terminal The winner of a high-profile international competition, Pelli Clarke Pelli’s design features what will be the tallest building in the city—a 1,000-foot-high obelisk. But what has captivated everyone’s imagination is the 5.4-acre rooftop park. Replacing a grim bus station at First and Mission Streets, the new center is scheduled to be completed in 2014. It will eventually bring Caltrain to downtown and have a high-speed rail link with Los Angeles. With nearby high-rises in the works, the area is being redeveloped as a commuter-friendly neighborhood.

ConTemporary arT museum aT The presidio (Camp) The plans for Gap founder Don Fisher’s pet project, a $150 million museum in the Presidio, have gone through a major revision. Responding to concerns about the initial design—a sleek white box by New York’s Richard Gluckman—a new proposal by local firm WRNS Studio has a substantially lower profile, further subdued by a green roof. The debate is expected to continue, with no construction date set. summer 2009 chdmag.com

Kau soi, nubby noodles coated in a sauce of coconut milk and ground chicken, is fancied-up street food at its finest.

As part of a $5 million renovation completed last summer, design consultant Riley Johndonnell updated this historic hotel with white tufted headboards and capsule-shaped mirrors while maintaining the 1913 building’s charm by uncovering the brick walls and restoring the original staircases and murals.

This Art Deco–inspired hotel has been around since 1911 but was recently overhauled by local design team Marni Leis and Oren Bronstein. The 177 rooms feature upholstered leather headboards and crystal table lamps. But the standout is the lobby, where an original fireplace has been updated with silver lacquer and the walls are covered with vintage artwork from San Francisco’s Lost Art Salon.

In 2000, when locals heard that Philippe Starck was redesigning the historic 1913 Clift Hotel, many feared his signature ultramodern style would trump the building’s Italian Renaissance roots. Thankfully, the result was a stylish middle ground: The lobby mixes gray plaster walls, limestone floors and a hand-carved check-in desk with whimsical accessories such as an 18-foot-high bronze fireplace.

Half of the rooms are in the 1904 building located directly on Union Square, while the others are in a more modern 1970s addition to the rear.
