In the last decade, a sum of efforts by developers, designers, planning officials, and activist groups has shifted the public perception of city streets--from utilitarian transportation corridors that need to exist apart from their surroundings, to beloved places that should and can be more physically integrated into the urban fabric. As a result, many of San Francisco’s new developments show signs of embracing, rather than denying, their position on the street.
STREET CRED features approximately fifteen of the city’s new and upcoming projects, and examines the strategies used by designers to encourage streetlife and enhance the pedestrian experience. The exhibition includes new buildings by Arquitectonica, envelopeA+D, and Morphosis; a fantastical “Streetscape of the Future” proposal by a group of local artists and designers; and video podcasts by Andrew Blum and Rebar.
