SOM's proposal is the sort of skyscraper that we in US the don't get. people say that Trump projects and the new WTC are too conservative, and to some extent thats true. This design defies the American skyscraper format. The Brits and French would love to get their hands on this one. BTW it is structurally similar to an extremely tall building SOM designed for Shanghai. I don't know why people people compare it to the SWFC, which is by KPF.

I hope the SOM proposal is used, it looks organic and futuristic at the same time.

yeah they compare it to the 700m ish shanghai centre design entrant for plot Z3-2. there is a thread all about the competition somewhere here. tbh some of my grounding for disliking the SOM design is the fact its very oriental. its not a very american design, although its beautiful in its own right. it doesnt fit with the rest of the skyline. im not a stickler before anyone brings up the chicago spire. but that is again a different style. however it is more compatible with american architecture than the SOM design here

SOM has the best tower. The Pelli design would be great if San Francisco existed in a void or it hadn't already been built several times already in other cities. The Rogers proposal is just fugly.

For the actual terminal though, I like the Pelli design the most, although SOM isn't that far behind. (AC Transit is already saying that it won't work, though.) Rogers seems to have treated it almost as an afterthought...I also don't like the idea of having the buses on the roof; the current terminal can already get pretty cold on the platforms, and it's enclosed.


Btw, shouldn't there be a seperate thread for the Transbay tower? It's a completely different project from the Renzo Piano proposal (which this thread is supposed to be about).

Anyone who supports this project should email the competition jury with their comments: D&[email protected]

http://www.transbaycenter.org/TransB...nt.aspx?id=323

*Please* everyone, send them your comments. I think most of us agree the Skidmore Owings Merrill proposal is the best, so please urge them to favour this design. And be sure to emphasise that this tower should NOT be reduced in height or compromised in any way! There are too many NIMBYs out there who could ruin this project.

THanks! I already sent them the comment. Of course I suggested them to select SOM design. I hope they will select SOM design.
