a+u’s April 2018 issue features urban transformations in San Francisco, with guest editor Craig W. Hartman, SOM’s Senior Consulting Design Partner.

The issue begins with the introduction of Transbay Transit Center, which is currently producing significant urban and infrastructural change within the city’s center. The project, a reaction to accelerated population growth, has become a model mixed-use development that combines public transportation, housing, offices, cultural programming, and green space into a dense, sustainable urban system—one that embodies a larger wave of transformation affecting the bay area.
