In spring 2015, VIA completed the design for iconic entry canopies to BART/MUNI’s Civic Center and Powell Street Stations on San Francisco’s Market Street in support of the Better Market Street vision.

 

The canopies are scheduled for construction in 2017 and will constitute the first prototypes of what might eventually be over 30 entrances along the corridor.

 

Features:

  • Introduced new materials and systems to the transit agency
  • Balanced a safe, secure design that is also modern, light, and environmentally friendly
  • Opportunities for public art help realize placemaking goals
  • Options were explored for habitat, energy generation, and storm water management
