Green Architects Talk Design, Development, and Reshaping Bayview-Hunters Point

Since its completion in 2011, the Hunter's Point Community Center has dedicated itself to building a sustainable community. Bayview-Hunters Point is one of the fastest growing communities in San Francisco, with over 34,000 ethnically and economically diverse residents. The 5,000 square foot Community Center serves a population dominated by families, meaning that 89 percent of the community's households have children. The pre-fab building tries to cater to all residents, functioning as a recreational center, in addition to job training, arts education, public meetings, and events.

Next month, Project Frog Architects Courtney Dill Glander and John Jackson will lead an interior tour of the community center, followed by a discussion. Project Frog is a company which combines green technological aspects of building materials with the aesthetic values of architecture. The community center is an excellent example of their work, which highlights the historic industrial area while accounting for its urban context.
