Urban Re:Vision to lead design Charrette in San Francisco this week

Urban Re:Vision San FranciscoThis week we are in San Francisco supporting Urban Re:Vision for a 2-day intensive design session to redefine the city’s Civic Center district using Re:Vision’s Unified Conceptual Framework which is currently guiding our sister project, Re:Vision Dallas.

To quote Mayor Gavin Newsom’s goal: “We are transforming our Civic Center into a global model for how to achieve a more sustainable future in urban environments.”

The ultimate goal is to enable the Mayor’s vision by generating sustainable design solutions for the Civic Center. Outcomes of this week will ideally include a set of design principles and a series of diagrams that show how the designs will function. Short and long term planning will be addressed in 3-month increments through fruition.

Partners in the revitalization project include The Art Institute, UC Berkely Extension, Art & Garden Cafe, Rana Creek Living Architecture, Jensen Corporation, Greenworks Design, Living Green, San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department, SF Botanical Gardens, Sloat Garden Center and others.
