Bloomberg San Francisco Tech Hub

Honor Award 2016
Bloomberg San Francisco Tech Hub

For their new tech hub in San Francisco, Bloomberg wanted to create a space that embodied their status as an established and innovative technology company. There would be no ping-pong tables, silkscreened inspirational posters or playroom-inspired spaces. Bloomberg is not a start-up, but a mature leader in the technology space. The Tech Hub is a laboratory of science and art. Its occupants take financial data and create new uses and applications for it. 

With its New Tech Hub, Bloomberg Shows Start-ups How It’s Done

Bloomberg may be the new kid in town when it comes to San Francisco’s hot tech scene, but the global business and financial information and news provider is no start-up. That’s abundantly clear when you see its sophisticated new R&D offices in the South of Market (SoMA) neighborhood: no foosball tables, beer taps or Velcro walls here, thank you very much.

A Scout’s Treehouse

How do you make an exhibit on sustainability as much fun as zip-lining? At the Boy Scouts adventure camp in West Virginia, a new five-story treehouse makes conservation cool.

When the Boy Scouts of America decided to build a five-story treehouse at its new 10,000+ acre high-adventure camp in West Virginia, the goal was to create a living model reaffirming its conservation heritage.

Design for Good

Pro bono work not only helps worthy clients communicate their message through design, but provides unexpected benefits for the designers as well.

David Berman ends his manifesto Do Good Design: How Designers Can Change the World with the Do Good Pledge:

1.  I will be true to my profession.
2.  I will be true to myself.
3.  I will spend at least 10% of my professional time helping repair the world.

California Academy of Sciences Natural History Exhibits

The Green Cabinet of Curiosities

Exhibits at the new California Academy of Sciences give the time-honored specimen box a contemporary—and sustainable—spin.

Imagine receiving the following creative brief:

"Collaborate with a Pritzker Prize-winning architect, evolutionary biologists and ecologists, and the staff of a 157-year-old acclaimed research institution to create a new generation of sustainable exhibition design for a space bathed in natural light and without walls, in the middle of Golden Gate Park, San Francisco."
