Townsend Passage Opens
The Townsend Passage officially opened on August 18th. This new public promenade provides a crucial link between Townsend Street and Brannan Street, for the SOMA neighborhood. The concept is “Shadowplay”, a oblique pattern and space that locks in with the coursing of shadows across the site. The sublime channel glass fence helps to accentuate the relationship between the vertical elements, and the horizontal vectors and patterns. The space features a large mural and sculptures by the artist Retna.
