Ocean Beach

20 Feb

One of the many things that makes San Francisco an amazing place to live is its easy accessibility to a wide range of outdoor activities. You can go to a beach (Ocean Beach Baker Beach), a national park (Presido Park), a hill (Twin Peak), a golf course (Lincoln Golf course) or wine tasting (Napa Valley) in as short as ten minutes to an hour from the center of the city. Maybe that’s how we should design our new cities.

19 Feb

An extreme U-turn – never saw a designated skateboard park or bowl in San Francisco, guess they don’t need it.

Walk-ability to me is more than just sidewalk and distance. It’s simply hard to walk a block when there is nothing interesting to see or interact with. Cars, trees, landscape, pattern of sidewalk’s materials and variations of “facades” make the little stroll much more walkable.

Dome is such a visible architectural type which can be viewed afar and be easily distinguished.

Buena Vista Park

17 Feb

It is very interesting to have a a hill as a park. You can keep making circles or walk up-n-down the hill until you get tired. You can also have changing views of the cities from circling at the peak.

Taiwanese Pavilion

16 Feb

Taiwanese Pavilion at Stow Lake. One way to fill up a giant park is to bring in landmarks from different countries e.g. Pagoda from Japan and Windmill from the Dutch

The perfect lawn

16 Feb

It would have been nice if the Panhandle ‘park’ was shaped more like the Lincoln Golf Course with smoother lawn, trees with higher foliage and more spacing between the trees
