Behind the curvature of a pearlescent lace-like awning, this multi-story San Francisco landmark transforms a commuter hub into an urban destination. With interiors open to the light, it's a sociable, open space for people to gather, topped by a leafy park where the sky is the roof.[from transit center website]
