Golden Gate Plaza

Location: San Francisco, CA

Project Type:

PGAdesign teamed with structural and waterproofing engineers to renovate Golden Gate Plaza at the Phillip Burton Federal Building. Design concerns included issues from sight lines and security of the multi-level plaza to managing extraordinary environmental conditions such as fog and strong winds. These issues were considered when selecting plant species. The design also addresses waterproofing and makes provisions for windscreens to create inviting gathering places. The resulting plaza is a dynamic and elegant forecourt to the heavily used federal building.
