Vacant lots are not eye sores, they are sprinkles of opportunity waiting to be woven into the urban fabric. In modern cities like San Francisco, ‘vertical’ is a dominating character and so it stands with reason that the urban landscape should ‘reflect’ that urban character as well. If buildings can be skyscrapers, then landscapes can be too, but there may be more than what meets the eye. The concept and design that transforms this vacant lot takes these notions of verticality, the urban landscape, and reflection and uses them to weave a once vacant lot, into the urban fabric while also creating a place of contemplation, refuge, and visual intrigue.
