SEARCH IN BRIEF

 
Three teams vie to reinvent San Francisco fort

Fort Mason in San Francisco was once a thriving military outpost. Now, the 13-acre waterside site dotted with long piers and industrial warehouses offering unprecedented views of the Golden Gate Bridge is set to be recast as a new arts and cultural district.

Three teams have been short listed in a ideas competition seeking strategies for the site’s regeneration. They are the Dutch firm West 8 with local firms Jensen Architect and landscape designers Marcel Wilson and Ira Berman; the all Boston team of Bruner/Cott architects with landscape firm Landworks Studio and WSP Flack + Kurtz engineers; and, AMP Aquitectos of Spain with Barcelona design firm Jansana, De La Villa, De Paauw.

Finalist designs will be presented in October at a public workshop where a five-member jury panel comprised of Golden Gate National Recreation Center Superintendent Frank Dean, Mark Buell, Chair of the Golden Gate National Park Conservancy, Los Angeles architect Michael Maltzan, Bonnie Fisher of ROMA design, and landscape architect Andrea Cochran, will select a winner.
