The Designs For Daggett Park
This Monday, January 23, San Francisco's Planning commission will present the schematic design for Daggett Park to the San Francisco Arts Commission, which, through their Civic Design Review process, is tasked with reviewing the design of all public projects.
As proposed, the park will include a tilted lawn, "penta-step" installation, wave bench and a dog run amongst other features. The full presentation for the park to be built between 7th and 16th Streets and the buildings of Daggett Place:

∙ Revised Plans For Daggett Place (AKA 1000 16th St.) Up For Approval [SocketSite]

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a "penta-step" installation? Modern architect lingo for 5 stairs, all in a row?

Cool, a little fragment of the Giant's Causeway in SF!

Let's hope they manage to do the lawns and drainage properly for a change.

All this elaborate presentation and hyperbole and expensive words for a damn park?
Welcome to San Francisco.

I like the sun and lack of bums

Love the presentation...particularly superimposing South Park and Patricia's Green to give a sense of scale.
