What is your favorite urban space and why?

Piazza di Sant Ignazio, Rome. A perfectly scaled urban space surrounded on three sides by matching 3 story baroque sculpted facades and anchored on one by an imposing travertine church facade, this space derives its power from its combination of balance and asymmetry. As memorable as the space is, the serpantine experience of compression and shadow on the narrow streets leading to the square forms the perfect foil for an extremely humane space.

What do you hope to get from URBAN SPACEship?

I hope to meet and collaborate with people who are inspired and driven by the potential of transformational change for San Francisco.

Urban / architectural designer, former instructor, current thinker and do-er. Cities must embrace their messy vitality; the incitement for new thought and action lies in the intersections between different cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives.
