I love living in San Francisco. There are many things about it that warm my heart: the Victorian buildings, the food, the neighborhood diversity… the list goes on. But the one thing that really gets me is the city’s environmental conscience. As the first town to outlaw plastic bags, San Francisco continually tries to outdo itself on the eco-friendly scale. The newest proposal by the Transbay Joint Powers Authority is a perfect example of the city’s commitment to all things green: a new transit center with a five-and-a-half acre public park on top of the building. We San Franciscians have Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects to thank for a design that blends transit, community, and sustainability together so well.
