    WAREHOUSE LOFT CONVERSION

    Under the San Francisco South Beach Redevelopment Plan of 1981, the Oriental Warehouse was designated an historic landmark due to its historical value as the early arrival point of Oriental immigrants.

    The brick warehouse, originally built in 1868, with a total area of 88,000 square feet (8,200 square meters) on two floors had for many years been used as a warehouse and storage space. — Published 2013.0213

    SAN FRANCISCO ROOFTOP APARTMENT

    This apartment, within an old paint factory in San Francisco, was created when the owner decided to add a home to his studio. It was important to separate the work area from the personal, which occupies a new level built atop the original rectangular structure. Tanner Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects designed the addition and renovation project. — Published 2011.0810

    NEW SAN FRANCISCO ARCHITECTURE

    SFMOMA commissioned a new sculpture garden for the top of its parking structure, with provisions to connect to the main San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building — a late-20th-century classic that prefigured the wave of museums constructed following the Guggenheim Bilbao in 1997. Jensen & Macy Architects conceived of the garden, which was completed by successor firm Jensen Architects, as a gallery without a ceiling. — Published 2010.0609

    CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES

    Renzo Piano demonstrates a mastery of light throughout his work. At the new California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, he exhibits the same care lighting a museum of the natural world as he has in lighting some of the world's finest art collections. — Published 2008.1112

    SAN FRANCISCO AIA AWARDS 2008

    With 40 different awards given by the San Francisco chapter of the AIA, and only a few repeat winners among them, there were plenty of happy architects by the Bay this year.

    Pritzker Prize-winner Thom Mayne and his Santa Monica firm, Morphosis, received one of four honor awards for excellence in architecture. Morphosis shared the award for the San Francisco Federal Building with the local office of SmithGroup. — Published 2008.0528

    SAN FRANCISCO AIA AWARDS 2004

    During the past few years of economic slow-down, American architecture has witnessed several trends: thoughtful rehabilitation of a nostalgic past, a quiet exploration of the next phase of modernism, meeting or exceeding strict sustainability standards, and especially in California careful reinforcement against the next big earthquake. These trends are all represented in the 2004 design awards from the San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIASF). — Published 2004.0519

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    The exhibition Art Deco 1910-1939 has opened at the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and will be on view until July 4, 2004. Although entire buildings cannot be brought into the museum, the exhibit successfully captures the essence of the deco style through films, drawings, furniture, models, posters, and reconstructed rooms. — Published 2004.0414

    OASIS FOR CHILDREN

    Creating a vibrant, challenging, and engaging environment is at the very heart of designing a childcare center. Should the architecture differ for children who are homeless?

    Seeking answers to that question guided the design for the Tenderloin Childcare Center, located in one of San Francisco's most deprived neighborhoods. The result, by Gelfand RNP Architects, is an oasis of safety for 72 children who come from homeless and formerly homeless families. — Published 2003.0924

    JULIA MORGAN IN CHINATOWN

    In 1932, architect Julia Morgan saw the opening of her YWCA building in Chinatown, San Francisco. Over 70 years later, actress Jill Jackson portrays the architect in a one-woman show, hosted by the Chinese Historical Society of America Museum and Learning Center, which now occupies the building. An excerpt shows how the play dramatizes Morgan's ideas. Editor — Published 2003.0326
