A Park Will Sit Atop Large SF Bay Mass Transit Hub | EarthTechling

This appears to be an outstanding multi-modal project that has definitely set the bar high for major metropolitan cities planning similar projects for the future. Hopefully they will take their cue from some of the ideas and strategies employed in the design and development of this project.

We’ve looked at drawings of a lot of splashy futuristic structures, but here’s one that’s actually underway as a grand public space in an American city: San Francisco’s Transbay Transit Center, a transit hub for eleven different public transit modes.

Aside from the undulating glossy facades, the most striking feature is the roof, a green public park with native-plant gardens, footpaths, cafes, an amphitheater, playgrounds, and a fountain running most of the structure’s 4-block length. That sits on top of four levels of transit access.
