Awardee: BUILD

The India Basin waterfront is currently undergoing a transformation into a legacy waterfront park for the City of San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. The waterfront park system will include more than a mile of continuous shoreline promoting public access, recreational amenities, interactions with the Bay, educational and cultural programs, and resilient habitat creation. A robust signage and wayfinding system, site-specific furnishings, and a destination sculpture park are key to creating a regional attraction, an interpretive dialogue with the past, and unique encounters with the Bay. BUILD:, the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department, and their partners will use salvaged Bay Bridge steel members as signature pieces in these larger systems. The pieces will be installed in prominent, publicly accessible spaces. In certain locations, the pieces will be positioned to enhance a direct line of sight and connection to the new Bay Bridge. And as signature members in prominent pieces along the waterfront, the steel will serve not only as public art, but also as a symbol of the incredible cooperation required for such transformative and historic projects to occur.
