Tunnel Top Park: Building Technology Seminar, Spring 2016

Continuing after the CCA Active Urbanism Seminar in the Fall of 2015, Meghan Dorrian (CCA) and Robin Abad (SF Pavement to Parks) collaborated on a Building Technology Seminar in the Spring of 2016 focusing on Tunnel Top Park. With guidance from the Tunnel Top Park Steering Committee, the students explored different concepts for multi-functional, modular prototypes emphasizing innovative use of concrete and timber. The Steering Committee outlined programmatic and performance requirements such as seating, shading, nighttime lighting, and fencing. The seminar culminated in an onsite presentation of prototype concepts constructed at full-scale. A Jury comprised of Tunnel Top Park community members and CCA faculty critiqued and selected the winning concept by students Fernanda Bernardes, Anh Vo, and Joshua Olivas.
