Cathedral of Christ the Light interior. I really liked how the glulam beams scattered the light throughout the cathedral. It created a beautiful well-lit space for church-goers.
Minnesota Street Project structural detail. Throughout the building I noticed that all the trusses were recessed into the wall. A few of us discussed as to why we thought this was and we concluded that it was probably that the new walls are pushed out from the old building.
C.V. Starr East Asian Library structural detail. This moment showed many different aspects that were integral to this building. William and Tsien highlighted many tectonic connections while also creating opening for social interactions.
C.V. Starr East Asian Library skylight. This was probably my favorite part of the entire trip. From the stairs it didn’t look like much but as you move through the space, the skylight suddenly appears. It is so striking and mind-blowing.
Hyatt Regency San Francisco atrium. I was amazed by the size of this atrium. At first I didn’t even realize that each level was a single floor until I rode up the elevator.
view from Hyatt Regency. Despite being in the dense downtown of SF I liked how open it was. All the buildings are spaced out enough to let in light. I also really like how everything was connected by this park/walkway.
1 Market Street atrium. This atrium seems like an exterior condition with the vertical fins but actually lined the interior atrium.
SF MoMA interior with Erin and Billy. The large seating area was a nice place to rest and gather as well as view the humongous Richard Serra.
