Candlestick Point State Recreation Area

San Francisco, California

A collaborative design by Hargreaves Associates, Mack Architects, and the artist Douglas Hollis, Candlestick Park on San Francisco’s Bay edge breaks new ground in cultural facility design. A language of location was developed from the dominant elements on the site — wind and water, ships and docks, and the landfill under the park itself — and manifested itself in the detailed articulation of the place.
