Hyphae was asked by GOOD Magazine and the Port of San Francisco to envision a new life for Pier 27 + 29, an awkward shaped triangular pier that juts out beyond all other piers. The design goal was to provide an unprecedented 360 view of the city, the bay, and the San Francisco waterfront. Soon the pier will be home to a new cruise ship terminal, and the hub of the America’s Cup. Hyphae wondered, how could this design best serve the citizens of San Francisco after the America’s Cup is over? About the project, GOOD Magazine writes, “Hyphae Design’s Brent Bucknum rallied the crowd with a solution to Dan Hodapp’s challenge from the Port of San Francisco to transform Pier 27 into an asset for the city. Using the changes that are already planned for the 2013 America’s Cup, Bucknum proposed a hyper-sustainable pier that would not only clean local waters using natural technologies (like oysters!), it would create a peaceful respite for residents that helped connect them with the biological processes of the bay.”
