The Sea Ranch: Architecture, Environment, and Idealism

Merit Award 2020
The Sea Ranch: Architecture, Environment, and Idealism

Conceived by a small group of Bay Area architects and designers in the early 1960s, The Sea Ranch development was envisioned as a progressive inclusive community, guided by the idealistic principles of good design, economy of space, and harmony with the natural environment. The Sea Ranch: Architecture, Environment, and Idealism illuminates these ideals through a wide array of drawings, photographs, models, and an ambitious 1:1 scale reproduction of Unit 9 from the first condominium constructed on the site.

The New San Francisco Museum of Modern Art: Identity and Placemaking

The building identification provides a visual presence for the museum within the surrounding cityscape. Large-scale exterior signage was added to the two main entrances not just to increase visibility of the entrances, but to provide a visual link between the faces of two architecturally distinctive buildings with entrances on different streets. A warm red logo was installed on the new white façade on Howard Street and a white logo was placed on the existing warm red brick façade on Third Street.
