STREET LIFE | YERBA BUENA a community design initiative
“STREET LIFE | YERBA BUENA: a community design initiative” will unveil a road map for ten years of improvements to the streets, alleys, parks and plazas of San Francisco’s Yerba Buena district. The exhibition, at the SPUR Urban Center Gallery, will introduce the recommendations of the Yerba Buena Street Life Plan, a community design initiative sponsored by the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District.
The exhibition’s August 2nd opening will feature the launch of San Francisco’s first parkmobiles, creating a temporary public space and a festive laboratory for city life in front of the Urban Center. Join your neighbors, Mayor Ed Lee, and other City officials for food trucks, free flowers, and urban innovations and learn about the future Yerba Buena.
CMG Landscape Architecture will present a unique perspective on public space and introduce the more than 35 projects that make up the Yerba Buena Street Life Plan. The Plan’s unique sensibility engages the public realm not as fixed and finished, but as an evolutionary process, becoming richer and more interesting through inhabitation, accruing texture and character through art, landscaping and spaces for city life.
