San Francisco’s Civic Center serves many roles and many people, but how do people use it on a daily basis? The city has partnered with Gehl Studio on a public life study that will help us better understand how people get around and spend time in the area’s public spaces. Come learn how the study’s results will provide a basis for future design and activation plans to be developed under the city’s Civic Center Public Realm Plan.
