Entry Description:

The Berkeley Ferry Terminal is designed to not only add a transportation mode to San Francisco, but also to architecturally express its civic importance. The project exploits the opportunity for architecture that celebrates a context with panoramic City and Bay views. The plan is an arc sweeping out from shore over water; as passengers walk from the entrance to ferry gangway, views shift with the building geometry. Mirrored panels on one side are angled to capture 270 degree views. The minimalist form is envisioned in ultra-high-strength-light-weight-concrete, the effect of which is to enhance the experience of being over water.
