Terraces, plazas, atriums, small parks and snippets: POPOS appear in many forms in San Francisco. Privately Owned Public Open Space, (aka "POPOS"), appear mostly in the SF Downtown office district area. All 68 of them have been created by mandate of the Downtown Plan of 1985, which states that private developers must create 1 ft of public space for each 50 ft of private.
Join us for a 2 hour walk as we explore a handful of POPOS in the downtown area. We’ll bring along readings to contextualize each space we visit, and welcome any materials you’d like to share with the group. For this walk, we’re interested in the collective experience of these spaces, where the boundary between private and public is hazy.
-Location: We’ll meet at 2pm @ One Bush Street, one of the oldest POPO’s in SF.
- Duration: 2h
