    AWARD

    With our ultimate goal being to design projects that serve their communities, we are thrilled to have Willie “Woo Woo” Wong Playground recognized in this year’s AIA CA Urban Design Awards!  In their acknowledgment of the playground, the jury commented, “Land is very scarce in San Francisco, and for this design team to make an “oasis” for children in a concrete jungle is a game changer. It’s a complex urban project–how it handles the relationship between the sidewalk and the internal parts of the building and the building envelope is very clever.” More.

    John King Reviews Willie “Woo Woo” Wong Playground

    PRESS

    San Francisco Chronicle’s urban design critic, John King, finds a hopeful message in the recently reopened Willie “Woo Woo” Wong Playground. He writes: “The fact is, these public spaces aren’t simply decoration. They’re part of the civic infrastructure that makes a place more or less livable — not as obviously essential as roads or power lines, but critical all the same. They also signal how decision-makers value ordinary people. A welcoming park or playground says that your presence and well-being are valued.” Read the full review here.
