Core to the community-driven redesign of Buchanan Street Mall, the Memory Walk is envisioned to physically connect all five blocks of the park, showcase local art, and honor community history.
Thanks to grant funding from the Prop 68 Statewide Parks Program and partnership between San Francisco Recreation & Parks, Trust for Public Land, and community organizations Citizen Film and Green Streets, we are moving forward with development of this key feature of The Mall’s upcoming renovation. We are pleased to announce our Memory Walk design team: Studio-MLA, with interpretive expertise by April Banks, and technical expertise from Buro Happold and HLB Lighting.
This summer and fall, Studio-MLA will lead development of a conceptual design for all five blocks of the Memory Walk. Detailed design and construction of the first two northern blocks of the walk and associated art, interpretive, and gateway elements will be incorporated into Phase 1 construction. More details on the process and opportunities for artist participation will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Buchanan Mall project team is hosting our first community meeting for the Memory Walk on Wednesday July 27th at Honey Arts Gallery in the Fillmore. The venue is ADA accessible and masks are required for entry. There is also an option to connect virtually.
