Program Recap | SCDA 8

The Sustainable Cities Design Academy in San Francisco was a productive and energetic session, thanks to our Project Teams and Design Team members. AAF hosted a 3-day event at San Francisco Planning + Urban Research (SPUR) center in the revitalized neighborhood of SOMA, kicked off with a multi-block walking tour of the Transbay Project by Courtney Pash, Project Manager with the City of San Francisco, and followed by an introductory evening event with partners from Architecture for Humanity, AIA San Francisco, Public Architecture, Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects, and SPUR.

The following gallery of images represent the collaborative charrette that ensued on Thursday and Friday as project teams from Brooklyn, Fresno, Macon and New Haven worked with design experts to tackle their key urban issues including:

  • New commercial zoning overlays and watershed restoration for Brownsville, Brooklyn
  • Parklettes and incorporation of existing Arts District for the Fulton Mall revitalization
  • Community engagement strategies and gateway creation for the Second Street Plan
  • Phased planning and new connections to existing neighborhoods for the Mill River District
