Moscone Convention Center: San Francisco, CA

This project, an expansion to the City of San Francisco's existing convention center, consists of two elements: a 50,000 square feet meeting room facility and a  300,000 square foot exhibit hall and support functions.  The expansion doubled the size of the existing exhibition facility, with the new exhibit space located at the same level as the original hall, thirty feet below grade and beneath the visual arts center, performing arts theater and garden esplanade which are all  part of the master planned Yerba Buena Gardens redevelopment. On Third Street facing east, the meeting room sits on the existing exhibit hall and is composed of terraced planters, curvilinear steps, glazed service corridor, long span trusses and a curved precast concrete service node.  These diverse elements break down the mass of the meeting room to relate it in scale to the new adjacent Theater and Arts buildings. The entire convention facility remained operational during construction.
Responsibilities included: program, site analysis, architectural design, construction documents and specifications.

Bowers Museum for Cultural Art and Artifacts: Santa Ana, CA

Located in downtown Santa Ana this 85,000 square foot museum extension is devoted to Cultural Art exhibits from Africa, the Americas, and the Pacific Rim.  The design for the extension is a modern interpretation of the existing museum.  The main two-story sky-lit space acts as linear organizing device for the entire project.  The design calls for changing volumes which utilize natural light while maximizing views to the exterior garden. The building configuration is related to the articulation of specific exhibit spaces which vary sectionally. The aesthetic order is based on the interaction of a diagonally bisected square plan with a series of rotated squares housing special exhibit and function areas which spatially modify and extend the museum volumes.
