From Ideas to Reality – Market Street Prototyping Festival
Whether you are walking quickly down the street rushing to work or strolling to meet a friend, you may get an epiphany of what the street is missing. What would make this stretch of street more enjoyable to traverse, less annoying? What would engage, connect and inspire you and your fellow pedestrians?
The San Francisco Planning Department and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts have collaborated on a project that allows residents of the city to address these questions and more. Fifty prototypes for Placemaking were selected and will be brought to life on Market Street April 9-11th. Even if you will not be in San Francisco, it is a worthwhile activity to take a close look at these creative prototypes and see if any would work in your area.
The target area for the winning prototype will become a permanent part of downtown Market Street that is undergoing a 5-year renovation.
