BART Market Street Canopies

San Francisco, CA

VIA’s team worked closely with BART staff to create the design for iconic entry canopies to BART/MUNI’s Civic Center and Powell Street Stations. These entrances are located on San Francisco’s Market Street and support the Better Market Street vision.

 

The pilot canopies are now open and in use 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
