Hayes Valley & Market Street, San Francisco
As part of the development of the One Oak residential project and associated Oak Plaza, BUILD is planning to install a series of large-scale exterior art canopies that will spark curiosity and joy to those passing by while providing wind protection for those who stay to enjoy a performance or a bite to eat. In addition, the canopies will provide power, lighting and shelter for public events and performances, and will substantially mitigate existing site impacts from wind and traffic noise. One additional canopy will be located off-site at the northeast corner of Polk and Market streets. Each of these tree-like elements will be unique in size and shape, with the largest canopy measuring approximately 30 feet tall by 30 feet wide. BUILD issued requests for proposal in December 2015 to solicit multiple artist submissions.
