rec-ature/ nat-reation/ cul-reation
assuming a post-industrial/ post chevron site scenario, this project is founded on an approach which applies an intensity of use gradient across the site and program - - uses such as recreation, take advantage of the rich cultural history as well as the natural ecologies of Potrero San Pablo by adopting this guiding design principle. From southeast to north west, an urban density gradient is applied allowing the urban core to melt into expanses of natural open space.
