Lessons for the Embarcadero?

New, 1 comment

British design dude Guy Julier gets interviewed about design, and has words about waterfronts that San Francisco may be interested in hearing, given the condo and pier projects we have in the pipeline: "They basically replicate models of all other waterfront developments around the world. ... They started off in America in the 1980s, particularly in Boston. You’ve got this gatey community effect as well, because often a waterfront development is looking away from a city and looking out to sea. And you’ve got then this problem of connectivity between the main part of a city and this waterfront development and so on. It’s a very delicate thing." [Pro Design, via Planetizen]
