New Haven, CT. (June 17, 2016) –Senior Principals Cesar Pelli FAIA and Fred Clarke FAIA toured the construction site of Transbay Transit Center recently and were very pleased with the progress. Joining them on the walk-through were Mohammed Nuru, Director of San Francisco Department of Public Works, Mark Zabaneh, Interim Executive Director of Transbay Joint Power Authority, John Rahaim, Director of San Francisco Planning, the acclaimed landscape architect Peter Walker, Principal of Peter Walker Landscape Architects, designers of the 5.4 acre park, and Bill Bradley, Principal, Adamson Associates, Architect of Record.
The article "Hints of lyricism now in transit at transbay hub" by John King of the San Francisco Chronicle quotes Fred Clarke, " 'It's going to really glow,' Clarke said a few days ago as he stood on the elevated open-air deck where buses someday will arrive from the Bay Bridge, a space screened by aluminum panels punched through with a crystalline pattern and coated in iridescent white paint. 'Look at the sparkle on the edge of the punches. You can design a space and simulate it (in computer renderings), but you don't have any idea that will happen.'
